Music and the Arts

We ensure that students have the freedom to embrace their creativity. From musicals to fashion shows and dance classes, students are provided with a wide range of performing arts opportunities. Athlone Community College is participating in the Music Generation Program. Our school is a melodic buzz of musical creativity. Inside the classroom, the music syllabus inspires creativity and music appreciation through listening, creating and performing. This is supported by opportunities to learning new musical instruments, engage in new music technology and try our many related extra- curricular activities:

  • Junior Choir Lunchtime
  • Music Club
  • Athlone Community College Orchestra
  • Traditional Irish Music Group Lunchtime Concerts
  • Freestyle-Rap Battles and Songwriting Workshops

The benefits of taking part in music activities are vast, and we encourage our students to participate and take as many opportunities to shine as possible. Could you be our next star?
