There are two separate dormitory areas on different floors one for boys and one for girls. The dormitories are sub-divided into cubicles consisting of a single bed, locker and a wardrobe. Students bring their own bed linen as well as posters, photographs and other mementos - all which serve to make their space 'home from home'
At the request of parents we do our utmost to accommodate friends in the same dormitory.

After school activities

We recognise the importance of organised, creative, leisure time and with this in mind our whole concept of cluichí agus caitheamh aimsire is based on full participation by all our pupils - buachaillí agus cailíní. Every effort is made to encourage the children to realise their own abilities in recreational pursuits whether indoor, outdoor, in groups, on teams or in solo events.
