PE in Ballina Primary school
Outdoor and Adventure
We chose Gymnastics as our Priority PE strand for further development during school years 2019-2020 and 2020-2021. An outside coach, Rody Kennedy from RK Sports, assisted in the teaching of Gymnastics. Each class received a minimum of 8 weeks gymnastics, and Rody has taught both the children and teachers. Teachers are learning from him and asking questions during each session to improve confidence and ability to teach this strand independently. A set of P.D.S.T. gymnastics skills cards (received during a CPD summer course in PE) have been printed and put in the P.E. storeroom as an extra resource for class teachers.
