We believe strongly in the importance of education for leisure in addition to the pursuit of academic excellence. Pupils and staff join in a wide range of activities which are designed to encourage initiative, discipline, leadership qualities and self motivation. The more popular societies are those devoted to debating and drama.
Field trips based on Science, Geography and History are arranged. Visits are also made to theatres, museums, art galleries and concert halls, and to archaeological sites including the Boyne Valley. Some activities take pupils further afield and overseas tours take place annually. Students have visited the United States, France, Germany, Italy and Belgium in recent years.
