Education involves the holistic development of each student. Physical education, and sport, play a dominant role in our college’s curriculum. The college has excellent sport facilities including a fully equipped Sports Hall, and extensive school playing pitches in the school grounds for football, athletics, and other games.
Students participate in basketball, football, judo, athletics, tag rugby, table tennis, badminton, and outdoor pursuits. Teams from the college take part in a wide range of inter-college sporting competitions in athletics, soccer, gaelic football, basketball, boxing and judo.
Students have access to Homefarm Football Club facilities beside Plunket College.
As part of our Outdoor Education Programme each class gets an opportunity to experience activities such as hill walking, canoeing, rock climbing and adventure sports.
Outdoor education trips involving overnight stays in hostels are enjoyed by some class groups as part of their overall programme.
"It was a lovely and relaxing day out when we needed it most. The weather was perfect and everyone was in high spirits. For a couple of hours at least, the pressures washed off of us and we had a great time". Cianan Monaghan
Repeating may seem like the end of the world but the dedicated and hard-working teachers and staff at Plunket College make repeating less stressful. I'd recommend it to anyone.
"I never thought that I would go to university because of Leaving Cert points, never mind have the opportunity to study in an area (Psychology) where it is so difficult to get a place. I owe how well I did in university in no small part to the year I spent on the Counselling & Psychology course in Plunket College; it was indispensable in getting me where I am now, a second year Psychology student in NUI Maynooth.
