Sport and physical activity play an important role in Mount Hanover NS. The Physical Education curriculum provides a balanced range of activities for children through the six strands: Athletics, Dance, Gymnastics, Games, Outdoor and adventure activities and Aquatics. Our annual Sports Day takes place in June for all classes. The school is represented in various extra-curricular competitions throughout the year, both in team and individual events.
On the Gaelic field we compete in boy’s and girl’s football in the Cuman na mBunscol. We participate in the Cooney Cup GAA competition. We are amalgamated with Bellewstown NS for this competition. In athletics the school is well represented each year at the Cross Country Meet and the Athletics Day in Claremount Stadium, where pupils from u10 onwards compete in sprints, relays, long distance races, and the long jump.
We are fortunate to have outside coaches come into the school to teach skills of various sports to the children. Duleek/Bellewstown GAA club are a regular fixture, catering for all classes.
A huge well done to the boys who represented the school in the Cumann na mBunscol final on Sunday.
Unfortunately it wasn’t our day. Nonetheless we are all extremely proud of the team! Congratulations to Kilbeg NS on their win.
Congratulations also to Cian in 4th class who was awarded the ‘Spirit of the Final’! The Spirit of the Final’ award rewards those who display qualities of motivation, determination, character and skill. Well done Cian!!!

No Events Found, Stay Tuned Though!
Our biggest sporting event of the year is of course our great Mount Hanover Sports Day!
As well as the children being fit and active in school, we encourage children to take part in activities after school. We are very lucky in Duleek and surrounding areas to have a vast array of clubs and societies which are available to the community.
