Castlepollard Community College provides a range of sporting outlets for our students. Involvement in sport and access to a variety of activities for all is key to the ethos of the college. Students can utilise the essential 21st Century skills on the field of play as they are encouraged to develop leadership, display resilience and demonstrate their ambition. We also aim to instil a sense of pride in our students when representing our school. In keeping with our mission statement, we aim to have a high expectation of personal achievement and success, not solely academically but also in sport and extra-curricular activities
As the school has grown rapidly over the last few years, our involvement in sport has also. The picturesque setting in which our college sits also provides us with first-class sporting facilities including a full size GAA pitch, soccer pitch and tennis courts. The school also has a fully equipped sports hall to host indoor games and activities.
The annual “C’mon Caman” celebration of local hurling and our Gaelic Football tournaments with our neighbouring primary schools, perfectly illustrates the sporting pillar that is Castlepollard Community College in the community.
The school also provides training from professionally trained coaches in both soccer and tennis.
This year, the school has also made the venture into competing in equestrian sports whilst the girls’ hockey team continues to go from strength to strength.
