We are very fortunate to have a large hall which has a stage in it. Our school has plenty of sports equipment including a parachute, beanbags, a range of balls for all sports, hurdles, balances, hoops, mats, skittles, racquets and uni-hoc sticks, equipment for sports day races, targets, goals, skipping ropes etc.
Our school has close links with Fingallians GAA club who come to the school on a weekly basis and do gaeilge football lessons with the children.
We regularly have a coach from Portrane Hockey Club come to our school to teach us all about hockey, practice hockey skills and we have even undertaken matches against other local schools.
Our school places a big emphasis on ICT and we have an interactive white board in every classroom . We have a computer room which has 15 computers, all with headphones, and a collection of educational software. TThe school has also invested in a set of 4 laptops for the Learning Support and Resource classroom.
The children go to the yard everyday for 40 minutes. The yard has been painted with a variety of colourful and engaging games to keep the children entertained. Each class also has the opportunity to play with skipping ropes during break times.
