School Sports

Scoil Cholmcille Sports & Activities!

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.
