As an active school sport is very important to us.
We attend swimming lessons in Mallow Swimming Pool in the first term.
All classes are involved in football and hurling and a local trainer comes to train the younger classes. GAA training is held after school for the senior classes.
The senior classes attend spike ball competitions and play tag rugby.
Pupils also participate in gymnastics, athletics, dance and Kangoo Jumps during the year.
We also part take in Cork City Sports each year.
Our music teacher Jacqueline Bolster visits the school weekly. She teaches a range of instruments from 1st to 6th class.
We are a Green school and are very proud of the hard work of our committee, pupils, staff and parents in this area. We are currently working towards obtaining our fourth green flag.
Health Promoting School
We have been awarded as a Health Promoting School. We encourage healthy eating and lifestyles.

Every second year our senior class take part in the Junior Entrepreneur Programme. Running over a 12 to 16 week period during the school year, JEP nurtures creativity, independence and problem-solving among pupils of all abilities, with every aspect of the Programme seamlessly blending into the primary school curriculum.
Each classroom is equipped with laptops and an interactive whiteboard.
We also have a store of iPads that are shared among the classes.
