At Ballyagran NS we promote activity as part of a balanced, healthy lifestyle. We see exercise as central to a child's ability to learn. We aim to develop fundamental movements from a young age and encourage participation in sports and activities regardless of individual ability or proficiency. We organise in-house sporting events like "Take on the Teachers" and GAA blitzes, Cuman na mBunscol competitions, gymnastics, swimming as well as badminton, tennis and much more as part of our PE programme in school. While competition may lie at the heart of organised sports, we aim to provide a balance with participation for all pupils through events like our annual Sports Week.
