We are very proud of our sporting tradition in our school. The boys are given every opportunity to play football at all levels from U10 to U13 with two teams at each level. We have been part of the Cumann na mBunscol football competition for years and have been very successful at county level. This has also benefitted the community of Clane at club level and Community Games. We also run our own in-house leagues from 3rd to 6th. These are very serious leagues and all the boys are encouraged to take part. We also have hurling teams at U11 and U13 who have done very well over the last few years and senior basketball teams have also won the county league and Blitz over the years.
We are also very proud of the other activities we offer the boys in Scoil Phádraig. The boys from Infants to 6th do Irish dancing lessons during the year. We also have violin lessons as part of our Music Curriculum from 2nd to 6th. We have two excellent teachers who come in every week to teach the boys violin and bring classical music alive for all in our school. We also have a fantastic choir who sing at all school masses and Carol Services and Confirmations.
ICT has also become a large part of our overall curriculum on Scoil Phádraig. Interactive Boards are used in every room and the boys have the use of laptops to bring a new dimension to their learning. Currently our senior boys are learning and engaged in Coding and Scratch programmes.
