Kilcoe National School
Skibbereen, Co. Cork
Kilcoe National School has a proud sporting tradition. We are closely connected to our local GAA team Ilen Rovers and many of our students play for the Ilen Rovers under-age teams. Some of our past pupils have even played in Croke Park with the Cork Senior football team.
Every year, as part of the PE curriculum we avail of the GAA Coaching in Schools Programme. This involves a coaching block of between 6 to 10 weeks where we learn skills in Gaelic Football and Hurling.
Every year we do a block of swimming lessons in Schull Harbour Hotel swimming pool.
Professional coaches provide blocks of lessons for all the classes in Dance, Yoga and Gymnastics.
We also enjoy entering competitions such as the Sciath na Scoil and the Cork City sports each year.
We acheived our first Active Flag in June 2015
