Supporting Physical Education/Activity in our Primary Schools
Tuesday 22nd September, 3.30pm - 7pm
Citywest Hotel, Saggart, Co Dublin
In October 2014 the Local Sports Partnerships in the area came together to organise a very well attended and well received seminar on supporting sport and physical activity in secondary schools.
This year the Sports Partnerships have taken the same formula but modelled it for primary schools. The key focus of the FREE seminar is on how primary schools can reach all their pupils, especially those underactive and to raise awareness of the options and supports available to the schools.
The Irish Sports Council report into Sport and Physical Activity among those aged over 16 in Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown has been officially launched by An Leas Chathaoirleach, Cllr. Josepha Madigan. The positive findings of this report highlight the great work that has been done in the County towards increasing participation. Organised by Dún Laoghaire Rathdown Sports Partnership, the launch took place on the 15 June 2015 in the National Yacht Club, Dún Laoghaire and was attended by local Councillors, Council officials, the Local Sports Partnership Board and partner agencies.
