Glenageary – Integration Programme – Ages 9-15

Glenageary is a suburb of Dublin, located 12km south of the city centre. This residential area is very quiet and is well connected to Dublin by both bus and DART. Its superb hillside location boasts views of the Irish Sea to the east and the
Wicklow mountains to the south.

This School, founded in 1973, is a large boarding school set on 16 acres of beautifully landscaped gardens. The school
comprises numerous buildings dating back to the early 19th century. Although spacious, the site is sufficiently compact to

STUDENT WELFARE

The welfare of our students is of paramount importance to us and we offer a high standard of care and supervision to all our students. The school provides nominated staff members to act as guardians to their individual students that travel without group leaders. It is very important  that students remain happy and healthy throughout their stay.  The Management,  along with the teachers and the activity leaders will ensure that all students receive the best possible care and attention so as to maximize their experience during their study holiday.

 

ACTIVITIES AND EXCURSIONS

The programme at this College offers a very comprehensive cultural, sports and evening programme.
Included are two half day cultural excursions to local galleries, museums and other visitor attractions and one full
day excursion per week to cities and places of cultural importance around Ireland. In addition to this there are three afternoons of sports with Irish students.

Facilities include: sports complex with a gymnasium where students can play table tennis, basketball, badminton and volleyball. There are extensive flood lit playing fields and tennis courts and an astro-turf hockey/football pitch.
