Extra-Curricular Activities

Oatlands u18 Hurling Team 2008/09

The extra-curricular life of the College is designed to promote the creative and rewarding use of leisure time through involvement in sporting and cultural activities. The collaboration and team spirit which these activities generate help to counterbalance the over-emphasis on individualism which the points' system tends to promote.

Extra-Curricular Activities:

 

Students are invited and encouraged to participate in a wide variety of sports and other activities. Each year, the school competes in inter-school competitions in Hurling, Gaelic Football, Basketball, Soccer, Athletics, Rugby, Archery, Judo, Golf, Chess, and Badminton.

Teams enter Business Quiz Competitions, Inter-School Debate Competitions, Student Enterprise Awards, the Young Scientistsí Competition, Young Social Innovators, Build a Bank, and Edmund Rice Awards. Students also participate in Schools Across Borders, and the Zambia Immersion Programme. 

Each year a College Musical is performed by Transition Year students in association with the girls from Sion Hill. Talent Shows are held on a regular basis. 

There is an annual School Tour in Transition Year to a continental destination (subject to sufficient uptake). Students regularly participate in cultural and educational outings. Transition Year students may complete the ECDL Computer Course and Oatlands College is a recognised accrediting centre.
