Students are encouraged to take part in some extra- curricular activity of their choice. There is ample opportunity to participate in activities that suit the students’ talents. Due to our success in many of these areas, our students have competed at the highest possible level and have enjoyed appearances on national television where they have presented their achievements and discussed the learning experiences involved.
Sporting opportunities in Desmond College are offered to all our students to promote healthy lifestyles and to further their physical development, as well as to awaken an interest and love in a new sporting experience.
Our students are offered the chance to participate in team games such as camogie, football, hurling, soccer, basketball and athletics.
There is opportunity at various stages in the school year for groups to take part in adventure trips, kayaking, hill walking, orienteering, cycling, bouldering, golf, gym work, and many more.
The Desmond College Sporting Department believe in meeting the needs of any group in any sport; in this respect we aim to provide our best efforts and commitment to each student so that they can reach their full potential, as both a team and individually.
