Education outside the classroom
Education is as valid outside the classroom as within and at Scoil Mhuire gan Smál we offer our students opportunities to travel both at home and abroad to enhance their whole education.
Curriculum centred trips include Geography field trips, History museum trips, visits to the Dáil and courts. We organise annual trips to Ballyhaas Lakes and Kilfinane Outdoor Activity Centre for our first year and transition year students. Our annual weekend in Dingle for fifth year students has been a ritual on the school calendar for over 40 years.
As a compliment to their linguistic and cultural studies our students have travelled to London, Paris, Munich, Rome and Prague in recent years.
This Year Leaving Cert students will be travelling to Italy over the mid term break to enjoy the sights and attractions.
