The development of our students’ musical and dramatic abilities is one of our main extra-curricular priorities.

The College aims to produce a musical every 2 years. In recent years our productions of “Grease” “High School Musical” and “Footloose” were a huge success and played to packed audiences. Another popular musical event is the “School Stars”  national competition. This annual event is a highlight of the school calendar. Irish Traditional music and dance are celebrated in the annual school Céilí which takes place in December.



Visual Art is also of great importance to us in St. Mary’s College – our students have been very successful in National Art Competitions and a high proportion of them continue to study Art at third level.

We have had particular success in the Junk Kouture competition and have showcased our work on the national stage.
