Extra Curricular

There is a wide range of extra-curricular and co-curricular activities offered at Hansfield ETSS e.g. Creative Writing, Book Club, Technology Club, Sports (Athletics, Basketball, Gaelic Football, and Rugby) Music Club and off site Trips & Tours (e.g. Cinema, Art Exhibitions, Theatre, BT Young Scientist). Details are available in the Weekly Bulletin Page.

Here are more details on some of the sports offered at Hansfield ETSS:

Athletics - we are involved in both cross country and Track and Field. Some of the events we have participated in include the West Leinster Schools cross country, medley relays and track and field competitions. These events are open to all students and we encourage anyone interested take part.

Art - we will be running a range of activities at different times of the year including Art Club and Craft Workshops which will be available to all students. There will be a number of art catch-up sessions to support students. Entering national art competitions is also encouraged and information about them will be posted on the wall of the art room for students to see.

Astro Pi - this is a Coding and Science club where students learn the programming language Python. Students then use this knowledge to enter a European competition where they broadcast messages in space and design an experiment to run on the International Space Station. This club is open to everyone. No previous coding experience needed.

Basketball - Hansfield ETSS has a great background in basketball. In 2017/18 the U19 boys team made it to the all-Ireland playoffs where they narrowly missed out on a place in the All-Ireland. In addition the first year boys team did really well and got to the Leinster quarter finals.

Emmanuel – this is a concert consisting of 20 songs performed with a live band at the Helix Theatre in March every year. Hundreds of students from schools across Dublin come together to perform at a sell-out concert. The students learn the Music in their respective schools throughout the year before joining the giant choir in March.

Soccer - Soccer is very popular. In 2017/18 we had 3 league teams: 1st years, U15 and U17. We hope to build on this and get a girls team started.

Badminton - This was added to the suite of sports available in 2017/18. Its popularity is increasing and we encourage all who are interested to take part.

Rugby - In 2017/18 we started rugby with a 1st year 7's team. We plan to add a add full 15's team as soon as possible.

T.G. Addicts - this is a Technical Graphics club. This club is for any student who has an interest in Technical Graphics. You will get the chance to ask questions to a Technical Graphics teacher, revise work, or push yourself by working ahead. In the future we would like to see this club being student lead.
