Sports and Horticulture

Our School Environment

We have developed suitable indoor and outdoor physical environments which offer a rich and varied learning experience for each child.  Children have access to the swimming pool one day a week; a fully furnished multisensory room; Sand Pool, Water Pool and Ball Pool; Fibre optics; specialised music technology; an outdoor playground; a sensory garden and fully furnished home economics room.

Physical Education

All of our students are offered the opportunity of weekly swimming lessons with our specialist teacher in the hydrotherapy pool in Lavanagh. In addition class teachers adapt the Physical Education programme to suit students with physical and complex disabilities. We teach a range of skillls including games such as Boccia.  We encourage all students to play and participate in games as well as encouraging them to follow sporting activities as spectators.


In our School we teach children that gardening is fun and we tailor tasks to suit individual children and disabilities.  We participate in a number of programmes which focus on horticulture and the environment and encourage our students to taste the wide variety of plants that we grow.

We have a number of garden spaces.  Our rockery, renovated by Mainport (for more click ‘Mainport’ here), is used for fun and games but also for mobility projects.  Our four raised beds (provided by Novartis, (for more click ‘Novartis’ here) are used for class projects and by our Home Economics teacher when teaching students about growing foods to eat.  We have a specially planted sensory garden at our back wall and a number of pots with seasonal plants are scattered throughout our garden.  Our students love feeding the birds.
