Sport plays a huge part of school life and forms an integral part of Presentation College's history. Click here for the latest Sports news
We are compiling a sporting photo archive this summer and we also have a special Presentation College Sport Twitter account: @PresCarlowSport where mainly sporting news and photos are posted.
Students have been very successful on the sporting front. A broad range of sports are offered to students, boys and girls, including Athletics, Badminton, Basketball, Camogie, Equestrian, Futsal, Gaelic Football, Handball, Hurling, Rugby, Soccer, Table Tennis and Vollyball.
The school has the benefit of very modern indoor and outdoor sports facilities. Students have access to a full-size Sports Hall for all of their PE classes and also to the aerobic machines and fitness console in the Fitness Suite. Outdoor facilities comprise five basketball courts, five tennis courts and three pitches. Such are the sports facilities available to our students that several outside bodies currently hire them.
Presentation College received the Active School Flag in January 2012, which was reviewed and updated in September 2016, from the Department of Education and Skills in recognition of our school’s endeavours to achieve a physically active and physically educated school community.
