Extra-Curricular Activities

In St. Mary’s, we offer a rich and varied extra-curricular programme which provides our pupils with many opportunities to develop their gifts and talents to the full.

As a school, we aim to cater for the interests of all pupils by offering a broad menu of activities, both during the school day and outside of school hours. We believe that participation in extra-curricular activities has many benefits for pupils and, therefore, encourage all pupils to avail of the extra-curricular opportunities on offer.
