Sport & Active Schools

Courtenay National School takes part in numerous sporting activities. We have a very strong link with Newcastle West GAA. We also work with Newcastle West Soccer and Rugby Clubs. We take part in various sporting competitions. We work with Limerick Sports Partnership to engage pupils in physical activities.

We hold the record for most West Cumann na mBunscol Football Titles. We have also won the County Primary Football Competition twice. We also have numerous West Hurling Titles.

As part of the PE curriculum, we provide our pupils with exposure to a range of activities. These include gymnastics, athletics, swimming, badminton, basketball, dodgeball and rounders to name a few. We are lucky to have an indoor Sports Hall so we can take part in Physical Activity all year round.
