On Tuesday we held our first ever PE XPo school competition. PE Xpo is a competition that examines the science behind sport. It is a project-based competition that gives teachers and students an opportunity to showcase their school’s achievements in the area of delivering quality physical education. The judges had a very difficult task as there were so many varied and interesting projects on display. The winners will be announced next week and will represent the school in DCU at PE XPo Ireland Competition on March 29th.
