Sport is hugely beneficial for children. By playing sports our children have another opportunity and context to utilise their STKEV values and competencies of Self Awareness, Teamwork, Kindness, Engagement in their learning and Versatility.
They also develop physical skills, exercise, make new friends, have fun, and improve self-esteem. At St. Kevin’s we promote individual and team games in competitive and non-competitive structures.
The focus is on participation and enjoyment. We have strong links with our local sports clubs and coaches to promote the importance of physical activity for all our pupils. As well as various after-school sporting teams, we participate in coaching and competitions in the following areas:
- Gaelic Football
- Hurling and Camogie
- Cross Country Running
