Sports

Sport plays an integral part of life in our school, in particular the gaelic games of hurling, football and handball.  We enjoy very strong links with Cashel King Cormacs GAA club who are a constant source of support to us in our endeavours to provide a quality, child-centred games curriculum. 

Pupils in our school also represent us in swimming, soccer, rugby and tennis competitions.  We, as a school community, love to see our boys involved in sport as we believe it has a very positive effect on them from a health and social perspective. Whether it is taekwondo, boxing, gymnastics, dance or horse riding, we love to give the boys the opportunity to share their experiences and successes.

Our annual school sports day is always a day to remember and many parents and past pupils join us on this special occassion.
