Physical Education


Over the past 10 years sporting activities have played an important role in the development of the college, and the students and staff. From humble beginnings, the PE Department now manages and delivers an extensive curricular programme with a wide range of extracurricular activities and college teams.

Dominic Clarke got the ball rolling on the ‘old site’ ten years ago when he set up the initial PE programme. At that time, facilities were limited and Dungannon Leisure Centre was asked to provide physical activities. During this time, school teams for soccer and netball were organised and friendlies were played with local colleges.

Moving to the new site, with better facilities, the PE Department had greater opportunities to develop sporting activities. Sport and physical activities now play a central role in the life of the college. The PE Department, along with many willing members of staff, have helped develop a wide ranging curriculum and an extensive programme of Extracurricular Activities. Additionally, through sport the college has developed strong links with the local community. Outside coaches from Dungannon Rugby Club, Dungannon Swifts Football Club, Armagh Athletics Club and Tyrone Towers Basketball Club have played key roles, as have coaching experts in Yoga and Dance. Also, the PE Department has utilised local facilities including Dungannon Park, Dungannon Youth Club, Dungannon Leisure Centre, Loughry College and Gosford Forest Park to establish strong community links.

The students are fortunate to have a number of staff who have given of their free time to promote and develop sporting activities in the college. This list includes:

  • Rita McKenna – Netball, Gaelic, Soccer, Cross-Country, Camogie
  • Dominic Clarke – Soccer, Basketball, Cross-Country, Rugby, Gaelic
  • Stephen Rice – Soccer, Cross-Country, Athletics, Gaelic, Rugby
  • Colin Holmes – Soccer, Gaelic
  • Lesley-Ann Hetherington – Hockey
  • Yvonne Beggs – Hockey
  • John Leckey– Soccer
  • Andrew Sleeth – Duke of Edinburgh, Outdoor Pursuits
  • Claire Sleeth – Horseriding
  • Deirdre Kelly – Gaelic (girls)
  • Aidan Dolan – Cross-Country (Founder!)

From the early days and the friendly sporting fixtures, sporting activities have underwent an enormous evolution with the college now participating in a wide range of sporting fixtures. Over the past few years the college has been competing in tournaments for Soccer (boys and girls), Gaelic (boys and girls), Rugby, Hockey, Basketball, Cross-country and Athletics.

The hard work and commitment of the students and staff have brought outstanding results including:
