Physical Education at Junior Cycle

In Junior Cycle Physical Education, students learn to appreciate the importance of regular health-enhancing physical activity and to make informed choices about how to include physical activity as part of a healthy lifestyle. Such informed choices are key to the development of lifelong habits of physical activity. The course builds on learning in physical education in primary school and lays the foundations for their learning in senior cycle physical education.

What is the Physical Education Junior Cycle exam like?

There is NO Junior Cycle exam in Physical Education. However, your teacher may ask you to keep a portfolio, which is a personal file, that could contain:

  • written accounts and drawings of activities which you did in class
  • records and reports from your teacher
  • photos of yourself in Physical Education class or in other physical activities outside of school

In junior cycle, six indicators–Active, Responsible, Connected, Resilient, Respected and Aware– have been identified as central to students’ wellbeing. PE provides learning opportunities which contribute to each of these wellbeing indicators.
