Our arts programme has been designed to instil confidence and creativity within our student body. We believe in the development of the whole student and the power that the performing arts has in this regard. Running in tandem with the school's curricular music programme, which is very popular with senior and junior cycle students, the school's arts calendar encourages student participation throughout the academic year. The schools extensive renovation and extension works facilitates much of this. Our new Sports Arena boasts a state of the art stage and sound system, accommodating concerts, musicals and individual performances.
Ms Lorna Wilson is a maths and science teacher and holds an Assisstant Principal 2 role with the responsibility for Arts Coordination. Ms Wilson implements the school's Arts Programme. The arts programme includes a wide range of curricular, extra curricular and personal activities that our student body are engaged in throughout the academic year.
