Extra-Curricular & Co-Curricular

Learning is not just about lessons in our classrooms. It is something that our girls seek out all day, every day.

However broad and stimulating an academic programme is, we believe it should be complemented by an exciting extra-curricular offering.

In addition to the host of regular school, after school and House activities, there are special events throughout the year dedicated to the development of the girls' all-round education.

Even at the end of a busy school day, we see girls keen to stay and take part in all sorts of pursuits.

Girls at Rathdown School are encouraged to be involved in a wide range of activities, to broaden their interests and try new things.

Rathdown School recognises the importance of extra-curricular and co-curricular activities for all our students. With this in mind, we have designed a programme offering a varied range of extra-curricular and co-curricular activities which provide a mix of sporting and creative opportunities for our students from KG2 to P6. Participating in extra-curricular and co-curricular activities is an excellent way for children to extend their skills and experience new activities. Our activities run in two 15-week blocks.
Please note all optional extra-curricular activities are subject to minimum and maximum numbers.
