Physical Education

Sporting Aims

The High School Ballynahinch, is a school with a long and successful sporting tradition and has always emphasised the importance of pupil involvement in a broad range of both team and individual sporting activity.  We foster strong links with local sports clubs.

Physical education seeks to provide pupils with opportunities to:

  1. experience a wide range of sports activities as part of a curriculum programme;
  2. become involved in an extensive range of extra curricular sporting activities;
  3. develop sporting abilities through the provision of specialised coaching;
  4. participate in both team and individual sporting competitions at school, local and provincial levels;
  5. develop healthy lifestyles and physical well being;
  6. enjoy the pleasure which can result from involvement in successful sport;
  7. create an awareness of the benefits of teamwork.
