At Kildare, there are so many activities, clubs and committees for students to be part of. We encourage all students to get involved and we offer the support and encouragement they need to explore their potential, learn new skills and make connections with others in the community.
We offer a range of sporting, performing arts, social justice and environmental groups, so that there is something for everyone.
