Physical Education in The King's Hospital applies a holistic approach to the concept of physical activity for young people. It recognises the physical, mental, emotional and social dimensions of human movement and emphasises the contribution of physical education to the promotion of individual and group well-being.
Leaving Certificate students may soon have the option of doing exams in two new subjects, politics and society and physical education. Work on developing the new subjects is at an advanced stage and draft syllabuses in both will be available next year.
The King's Hospital has extensive facilities to provide students with the required variety of physical education pursuits, swimming, athletics, canoeing, dance, aquatics, fitness and any health-related activities.
