OUR ACTIVITIES

At Monaleen National School we have a wide range of activities both during and after school to suit the interests of all our pupils.

 

Sport

Sport makes an important contribution to children’s physical, personal, social and emotional development. Monaleen National School provides opportunities for every pupil to engage in physical education at every age level. Curricular activities include games, aquatics, gymnastics and dance. Specialised coaches are also utilised in areas such as GAA, soccer, athletics, rugby and gymnastics.

Monaleen National School is fortunate to have a dedicated and talented staff who provide after school coaching in many disciplines. We have a strong tradition of competing in a wide range of team sports promoting participation, team-work and skills development for both boys and girls.


 

Creative Arts

Arts education is an important dimension of the primary school curriculum and invaluable in stimulating creative thinking. Arts education incorporates the three subjects of art, music and drama. We have a very active school choir and school band and also offer after-school arts and music lessons.


 

STEM

Monaleen National School has received the Digital School of Distinction Award for promoting ICT learning in the classroom. We are also proud to have been awarded the Science Foundation Ireland Discover Primary Science and Maths (DPSM) Award for Excellence in Science and Maths and continue to promote STEM learning at all ages throughout our school.

In addition to the curricular areas, Monaleen National School offers a wide range of extra-curricular activities in STEM education e.g. Coding Club, Chess Club and Mathletes.
