Girls who participated in Cross Country running in Ratheniska earlier this year.
Swimming and water safety form a major part of the Sport Programme at Sacred Heart School. All classes from first to sixth avail of swimming lessons twice yearly. The children have an opportunity of completing their swim tests 1 - 5 and progressing when ready to the water safety courses. We are looking forward to returning, in the spring, to the recently renovated Portlaoise Swimming Pool.
There is a long tradition in Sacred Heart School of participating in the Cumann na mBunscoil football leagues. Teams are drawn from fourth, fifth and sixth classes. The girls really enjoy taking part.
Classes from first to fifth benefit greatly from ongoing hurling coaching sessions organised by Cumann Luthchleas Gael - Laois. These sessions enable the children to develop and refine skills needed for all ball games but in particular camogie and hurling.
