Our Sports

About Us

To say we are passionate about sports in St. Laurence's NS is an understatement!  We recognise the critical importance of physical activity and team play in the lives of our young boys and girls and encourage their participation at all levels.  We are lucky to have great sporting clubs on our doorstep - Na Dubh Ghall GAA, Baldoyle UFC, and Suttonians RFC to name a few.  We also coach Basketball, Swimming, Trackside Tennis, Table Tennis and Athletics and our school takes enormous pride in our continued sporting achievements over the years.  Visit our Hall of Fame to learn more about our awards and click on the links below to directly access these club/association websites.

As this map of our school and grounds demonstrates, our school has truly excellent sporting facilities which includes a surfaced yard & basketball pitch, football pitches and an all-weather pitch (see bottom right - darker green).  We have a mutually beneficial arrangement in place with Baldoyle United FC who have use of our grounds at agreed times and, in return, care for the maintenance and upkeep of the facilities to the highest possible standard.  As a priority, our young boys get to enjoy extensive access to these state-of-the-art facilities.

Please contact us If you would like the opportunity to view our school and extensive grounds.



Other Local Organisations

We also promote the active participation of the boys in all kinds of physical activity outside the school.  Many of our children are part of Scouts Ireland at Beaver (ages 6-8) or Cub (ages 9-11) level in Sutton, Bayside and other nearby groups.  Scouting offers a huge range of adventure activities which are age appropriate.  The Beavers learn new things like camping, while the Cubs get to plan their own adventures and care for the community and the environment.  Many of our students also belong to the Song and Dance Stage School in Baldoyle where they appear in regular concert and musical theatre performances  to widespread critical acclaim.

All of the after-school activities provide a great way for the boys to stay fit while learning new skills and growing in confidence. We are lucky to have some of the best sporting and stage school organisations in Ireland right here in Baldoyle!
