Integrated Sport

Athlone Park Primary School introduced the Integrated Sports Programme for Grade 1 to 3, to the school curriculum with a belief that every child deserves the opportunity to be exposed to as many different sports as possible.

The idea behind it is to have sport as a subject during the school day, which exposes children to various sports throughout the year that they ordinarily would never have believed would interest them and to promote a healthy style of living with exercise. Each term is dedicated to a specific sport or two, which enables the coaches to teach the children the correct techniques needed in order to excel at an older age.

Integrated sport has been hugely successful in growing the number of children participating in sport at a Grade 4 level.
