School Sports Teams
St. Tola's offers the pupils from 3rd class upwards the opportunity to play on Hurling & Camogie teams, and both Boys and Girls Gaelic football teams.
All of our sports teams have had excellent success in the Cumann na mBunscol competitions. Ms. Somers, Mr. Doherty & Ms. Varley are our school coaches.
Here at St. Tola's we encourage the pupils to get active on a daily basis. To help us do this we have a running track in our school which is used by all the classes.
The children from 1st class up also have the opportunity to take part in the Belvedere and Rathwire Cross Country races every year.
An external music teacher comes to St. Tola's once a week and teaches the children from 1st class upwards tin whistle.
By the end of their schooling children will be competent tin whistle players who are able to read music notes and play a plethora of tunes. Our children even had the opportunity of playing at this year's fleadh ceoil for the President!
