Broadening Student Horizons
The cultural programme offered by Dublin Oak Academy strives to broaden the student’s personal horizons by introducing them to the way people lived before in another land, and better understand the world around them. This cultural programme, harmoniously blended with and supported by the Academy’s human formation programme, will help the students evaluate and appreciate the positive elements of Irish culture and in so doing they will discover and cherish their own culture.
Outings are an element of the Dublin Oak experience that supports cultural appreciation, fun, and athletic development.
Recreational & Formative Sports Clinics & Physical Education
Dublin Oak believes deeply in the importance of athletics as an integral part of the total education of mind and body, 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.
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.
The sporting year at Dublin Oak Academy is broken into three clinic terms of roughly 11 weeks each. Each boy chooses two sports to do each clinic term. At the beginning of each new term, the boy has the opportunity to change clinics.
Building Skills, Character, and Life-long Passion
Our Physical Education and Sports programme is designed to allow pupils discover what sport they excel in. This will encourage them to continue with a lifelong participation in sport, once back in their country of origin.
In Dublin Oak Academy Sport is a tool which not only encourages team play but also looks at promoting and developing leadership skills, fair play and the test of challenging oneself to improve in a given task.
Extended Trips / Excursions
