SPORTS CHALLENGE

Dublin Oak Academy offers a competitive and complete Sports Programme. Physical Education classes combined with Sports Clinics, give our students the opportunity to develop their skills and learn about healthy living habits.

Recreational & Formative

Dublin Oak believes deeply in the importance of athletics as an integral part of the total education of mind and body, it therefore strives to ensure that its sports clinics are recreational and formative. In addition to developing a child’s body, well-monitored sports increase a boy’s self-confidence, his ability to work as a member of a team, his willingness to accept and meet challenges, and his desire for constant improvement: all essential elements in a man of character.

We commit considerable resources in time, effort and money to delivering the best sporting experience to our students that we can and we are always striving to improve this aspect of the academy.
