St. Catherine’s School strives to involve and engage all pupils in a variety of different activities during the school year. We recognise the importance of pupils being encouraged to develop their talents and skills in all areas.

Discover Primary Science and Maths

For a number of years we have participated in the Award of Science and Maths Excellence. Each class works towards achieving this goal. We look forward to working hard in the area of science and maths for this award.

Green Schools

We are very involved in the Green Schools Programme run by An Taisce. We have a Green Schools Committee which is made up of a number of pupils from each class, who meet regularly to work on the seven steps of the Green Schools Programme. We continue to work towards our next flag.

We regularly invite local sports coaches to our school to introduce our pupils to different sports and activities, in order to encourage pupils to participate in local sports clubs and foster their interest in a variety of sports and games.
