As GAA is the stronghold of our community, in school and outside, the children get very excited about having GAA coaches come to our school. These coaches offer skills, knowledge and expertise to the children and staff. 

The GAA share our schools view of the importance of Fundamental Movement Skills for children. Offaly Coaching and Games have worked with coaches such as Paudie Butler to design programs that incorporates a large number of fundamental movement skills and strands of the PE curriculum. At the start of the school year, coaches sit down with representatives from our staff to work out a plan of which  fundamental movement skills and PE strands will be covered. 

We wish to thank our partners Na Fianna Minor Hurling club, Offaly Coaching and Games and Leinster GAA for their support in this initiative. 

We also have regular communication with our partners through designated club contacts. Any club achievements are celebrated in our school.

We also acknowledge the incredible support of Clodiagh Gaels GAA club who allow our school the use of their grounds. This includes walking track, playing field and astro pitch. Their generosity is greatly appreciated.
