The school is well equipped with audio/visual aids. Each class has access to computer facilities including a laptop for each teacher. All classrooms are equipped with projectors to enhance the learning environment of the school. In 2009, we installed a state of the art audio visual system in the school hall which includes a 9ft screen and surround sound facilities.

The main subjects in our school are: Irish, English, Mathematics, History, Geography, Science, Religion, Nature, Physical Education, Arts & Crafts, Music & Singing, Drama, Social, Personal and Health Education. French is taught in senior classes.
