Providing physical education both inside and outside of schools is crucial in helping young people to learn and develop life skills.

In Scoil Iósaf, we are very lucky with the facilities around the periphery of the school. We have a school hall, fine yard space, and a green area. Children experience a variety of sports and get a taster from internal and external coaches.

Currently, we have a football team, basketball team, camogie team, indoor camogie team and a soccer team. We enter all the local competitions and in recent years have been very successful.
