Extra-Curricular Activities & Sport:
One of the main highlights of the school year is the school tour. To date, students have travelled to many European destinations including Paris, Rome, Milan, Holland, Belgium, Germany and Barcelona. These tours are of vital importance to the students as they, not only, give the students the opportunity to experience a variety of different cultures but also to make life-long friends and to enhance their personal development.
Throughout the year, many educational trips, such as visits to exhibitions, lectures, shows, museums, art galleries, wildlife parks and career days are organised for the students. These trips are of particular importance in the areas of Career Guidance, English, Geography, History, Science, Agricultural Science, Drama and Art.
September is a very exciting time for the first year students as they all head off on the annual trip to the Dunmore East Adventure Centre. This trip gives the new students the opportunity to get to know their peers and foster bonds which will last well into their adulthood. Throughout the day, students take part in a variety of outdoor activities ranging from rafting and kayaking to assault courses.
Every year, the students of Dungarvan CBS take participate in many different activities in a bid to raise important funds for both local and national charities. Recently, students were involved in the Concern Fast in which they raised a substantial amount of money for the charity. Our TY students also participate in a range of community based activities as part of their personal and social development.
Wellbeing of our School Community
As part of the Junior Cycle Programme students are timetabled for 400 hours of ‘Wellbeing’. The wellbeing of our entire school community is paramount in our school. Each year we have a “Being Well @ Dungarvan CBS” week. Workshops are given to promote wellbeing, for example in the areas of nutrition, physical exercise, mindfulness, first aid etc. During this week the entire school participates in a Greenway cycle/walk to emphasise the importance of exercise and fresh air in our lives and also to strengthen our school as a community.
Students at Dungarvan CBS are given a full range of opportunities to take part in physical education and competitive sports through inter-school activities. All students are encouraged to make full use of these opportunities for their own personal benefit and to contribute to their overall development both physically and mentally.
Students have the opportunity to participate in: Hurling, Football, Soccer, Rugby, Rounders, Volley Ball, Basketball, Swimming, Golf, Tennis, Badminton, Swimming, Table Tennis, Cross Country, Track and Field and Winter Running Leagues.
Our annual Sports Awards take place every May, where we recognise all sporting achievements of our students. We honour both achievements in school as well as those attained outside of school.
Each year Dungarvan CBS has an Academic Awards evening to acknowledge academic achievements of our students. This evening allows the school, parents and students to celebrate our students’ performance and hard work over the year.
