Our school actively encourages and supports the work of local sports clubs and physical activity providers .

The local soccer and GAA clubs visit the school during the year to give the children details of their upcoming events and training nights.

South West Wexford Community Development Group regularly sends us updates on Easter/Summer camps and we distribute these to the pupils in school.

The school takes part each year in Rackard League hurling,camogie and football and Mini 7s hurling,football and camogie competitions. These are run by Cumann na mBunscoil and a teacher is in charge of each team. The local GAA club, St. James’, and the school work together to coach the teams for these competitions.

We have a strong link too with the local Shielbaggan Outdoor Pursuits Centre. This year the senior classes went to Tintern Abbey to take part in a day’s orienteering.

What a day we had  when we teamed up with Shielbaggan Outdoor Pursuits Centre to go Orienteering in Tintern Abbey. The weather was even kind to us! 

The tutors from the centre picked us up from school at 9.30am and we travelled by bus to the Abbey. 
There the children from 3rd to 6th classes were divided into teams of 4 and played some team games. Then the real fun began! After some instruction on map reading each team set off at 25 second intervals to complete the course. 
Mmm. Now where are we exactly??
Only 10 more markers to find now lads!!
Off on the bus back to the centre in Ramsgrange for some more fun!
A great day out!

Our school will take part in Cycle Right this year for the first time. This is a joint initiative between Cycling Ireland, the RSA, and the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport.  We are really excited to be involved. Our 5th and 6th classes will take part in 5 weeks of lessons given by tutors from Shielbaggan Outdoor Pursuits Centre and we hope will be proficient cyclists at the end of the programme. We plan to have this initiative in our school every second year from now on.

We also have links with the FAI and take part each year in the FAI 5-a-side soccer tournament in New Ross. Our girls made it to the final this year and last year our boys won the local final and went on to compete in the next round.

Co. Wexford GAA coaches visit the school for at least two blocks of six-weeks during the school year and teach the pupils the basics of hurling and football.

Well done to the girls and boys from the four local schools who won both the camogie and hurling Rackard League district finals in Taghmon on May 17, 2017. There was a sense of deja-vu as some of the players were on the teams that also these titles in 2015.

The girls played Barntown in today’s game and the boys played neighbours Tintern. Both teams now progress to the Co. semi finals which will be played in the coming weeks. Well done everyone! We are all very proud of you.

Congratulations to Seaview Utd on winning the u14 Div 2 league title this week. Pictured below are our representatives on the team. Well done to all involved.
