Students will need to ensure that they have enough food and drink for the day: a healthy diet is fundamental to achievement inside and outside of the classroom.


Students are provided with a warm, comfortable environment in which to do homework and study. Parents are reassured that we are caring for their sons and helping them to organise their day based on all that is on offer in St Vincent’s Castleknock College.
