School Partnerships and Initiatives
We have a partnership with Leinster Rugby. All pupils will learn how to play rugby in weekly classes with a trained coach for a six week block.
All our pupils participate in a block of swimming lessons subsidised by the school. The lessons take place in Mespil Swimming Pool, Mespil House Flats, 4 Sussex Rd, Dublin, D04 H9T0.
Speech and Drama
Our excellent Speech and Drama teacher, Clare, teaches every class weekly. All pupils get the opportunity to perform at our Christmas concerts every year. These shows are a wonderful show case of our pupils’ talents and a big occasion for our school community.
Active School Flag
In 2017 we achieved our Active School Flag and continue to put into practice the wonderful activities we initiated during this process.

Fighting Words is a writing workshop and each student leaves it as a published author! At the end of each workshop, the students receive a printed and illustrated copy of their story as a keepsake for them to share with friends and family.
Each group story is also published on the Fighting Words website for children to show off their incredible, imaginative writing to the world!
