Extra Curricular Activities – Sports & Physical Activity

Our Lady of Lourdes is committed to the promotion of extracurricular activities for all students in the school. We recognise the multi-intelligences students and want extracurricular activities to play a part in the development of these.

It is also believed that extracurricular activities play an important role in the holistic education of each student, such as the development of self-confidence, self-esteem and school spirit.



Many Our Lady of Lourdes students are also members of the local swimming club and represent the school in the Leinster Senior Schools Swimming gala each year.


Many students in Our Lady of Lourdes represent the school in the various events throughout the school calendar.

The Inter Schools Show Jumping competition and the Inter Schools X-Country are two events that students look forward to most and proudly compete alongside each other to represent the school.


Some students also take part in the Schools rowing Regatta which allows students to represent their school and club in this yearly competition in April.
