Sports and Activities.
In Mount Sion, education is not confined to the classroom. From the earliest years our children are encouraged and enabled to engage in a wide range of activities and sporting pursuits. There is something to suit all tastes, talents and aptitudes. As teachers we endeavour to help each child find an avenue of interest throughout their time in Mount Sion which they may carry with them as they go through life. From chess to gardening, from Irish dancing to Olympic Handball, from debating to book clubs, it’s all happening down Barrack Street way! So whether you want to be the next Ken McGrath or Gary Kasparov, here at Mount Sion you will find an activity to compliment your school days!
Mount Sion is a name famed in hurling circles and that devotion and affinity with our national game continues to thrive in our school. Each generation inherits a new legacy and when we number names such as John Keane, Pat Fanning, Frankie Walsh and Ken McGrath amongst our past pupils it is no wonder Gaelic games occupy a central role in our sporting pursuits.
Recently our 3rd their first time playing on the county’s premier pitch and also their first time representing the school! They had a brilliant day playing Ferrybank, St Paul’s and St Stephens.
