FOOTBALL, Hurling / Camogie
Steeped in tradition within the locality these sports are promoted and taught at an extensive level within the school and the enire community. Ahiohill N.S. has a large football pitch complete with goals. We also take part in many competitions such as Scith na Scol to encourage the children's participation.
With our astroturf surface at the front of the school, soccer can be played and enjoyed, even on a wet day!
1st to 6th class take part in a six week swimming programme in our local pool In Dunmanway, where they learn to grow in confidence in the water, stroke improvement, and some basic live saving techniques.
All forms of dance are explore within the P.E. curriculum. In particular the children of Ahiohill N.S. get the opportunity to learn their native dance - Irish dancing, with many opprtunities to perform publically, for examples at the Christmas Concert, and most recently the 1916 Proclamation Day celebrations .
The children are encouraged to explore many areas of athletics. We enter the Cork city Sports each year, while also hosting our own annual School Sports Day.
Children get to try out singles and doubles table tennis as part of our 'Individual Sports' promotion.
We are lucky to have the space and terrain to be able to to promote basketball, where children can play mini games and practice their target shooting in the new and improved basketball area.
