The new Dare to Believe secondary school programme brings the Olympics to the classroom and inspires students to Dare to Believe in themselves. We do this through our Olympic Values core curriculum programme that culminates with a live inspirational Team Ireland Olympic Ambassador workshop. The secondary programme is designed to work as a TY Modular leaning course but could also be used as curriculum for Junior Cycle wellbeing.
Our programme helps students to connect to the values, life skills, and the biological, psychological and social benefits of sports. Developed with input from teachers, Olympians, mental health counselors and students, the 6 Unit teacher-led curriculum includes flexible user-friendly resources; presentations, teacher & student worksheets, activities & games.
Once you complete the Olympic Values Curriculum you will be eligible to book an Olympic ambassador visit to your school.
Who is it for?
The TY modular programme is designed for secondary schools looking for a new way to engage students in an interdisciplinary wellness and life skills programme that is based on the Olympic Values of healthy mind & body, respect, joy of effort, courage, equality & excellence. The curriculum aligns with the Key Skills and indicators of Wellbeing and learning outcomes for Transition Year including being personally effective, communication , critical and creative thinking and information processing. The programme successfully bridges the gap from practical Junior Cycle PE to Leaving Cert PE that includes theory in addition to practical. In addition the curriculum will show sport’s impact on social, environmental and economic issues at local, national and global levels.
