Gymnastics for Schools : Summer Course for Teachers

We are delighted to be offering an approved 5 day summer course for primary school teachers, “Gymnastics for Schools”. The course runs July 4th-8th (Mon-Fri), 9:30-2:00pm, cost is €40, and includes a light lunch.

We developed this course for Irish primary schools, taking into mind both the curriculum and facilities currently available. It will be useful to primary school teachers who wish to teach gymnastics confidently.

This is a practical and interactive course under the direction and supervision of qualified Gymnastics Instructors. A small number of gymnasts will be present to facilitate skills and practice.

Teachers: to register contact the Galway Education Centre, Cluain Mhuire, Wellpark. Galway, tel 091 745 600. Ask to register for the “Gymnastics for Schools” summer course.

Club members please encourage teachers you know to attend this course. Greater involvement with the Department of Education is part of the long term strategy for Renmore Gymnastics and the Galway Gymnastics Training Centre.
