How To Go Sailing For The Leaving Cert

24th December 2017
How To Go Sailing For The Leaving Cert

#Sailing - With sailing being included as Physical Education is added to the Leaving Certificate next September, Irish Sailing is encouraging parents to urge their schools to apply for the first phase of the new curriculum.

Participating schools have three options to choose from, including Physical Education as an exam subject and as a non-exam framework for the Senior Cycle.

Among the six main ‘physical activity areas’ denoted for the new curriculum, sailing is listed under ‘Adventure activities’ along with canoeing/kayaking and rowing/sculling.

Interested schools are also encouraged to get in touch with their local sailing club for advice via Irish Sailing’s regional development officers.

The closing date for applications for the Phase 1 School Selection survey is Tuesday 16 January 2018.
