They may be atrracted to the traditional artistic pursuits such as painting, sculpture, singing, or music. Or they may show more interest in design activities, such as architecture, animation, or craft areas, such as pottery and ceramics.

Creative people use their personal understanding of people and the world they live in to guide their work. Creative people like to work in unstructured workplaces, enjoy taking risks and prefer a minimum of routine.

Physical Education




 

Junior Cycle - Physical Education

Subject Group: Social
These subjects explore common issues faced by all people living in society. They develop the skills and knowledge used to manage personal resources and guide human behaviour.

Brief Description:

Physical Education (PE) is a subject where you can take part in and learn about physical activities. You learn about how important keeping fit is for the health of your body and mind. In some activities you work on your own and in others you work with your classmates as part of a team.


How will Physical Education be useful to me?

At the moment, there is no subject called Physical Education after the Junior Cert. However, a Leaving Certificate subject called Physical Education is likely to be introduced in the future. You will continue to do physical activities in different ways but you may want to focus on one or two key areas in which you have a special interest.
