Students are encouraged to participate in activities outside the classroom. Boys and girls are catered for in many sports (soccer, football, basketball, and athletics). Participation in other activities like debating, Young Scientist, art competitions, school tours and Speech and Drama is encouraged.

These activities are not only important in themselves but also because they foster a spirit of enterprise and co-operation between students and teachers to the benefit of all.


Co-curricular activities play an important role in extending and assisting the development of the curriculum.

In all our co-curricular activities, the emphasis is on creating focus, broadening the knowledge base, exploring different teaching methodologies and ultimately, increasing confidence in the learner.

We actively encourage the student to take responsibility for their own learning through continuous assessment and constructive feedback in preparation for 3rd level education.

These include:

  • Public Speaking/Debating
  • Competitions
  • Field Trips
  • Enterprise Education Trips
  • Visiting speakers
  • French Summer Schools
  • Seachtain na Gaeilge
  • Drama
  • Music
