Learning Exploring Developing


We never stop learning. The philosophy underlying the Columbus Club ethos is that children thrive on learning by “doing”, by creating and by trying new opportunities and activities. We foster the sense of wonder and fun which together are key ingredients to life-long learning.


Columbus Club provides a wide range of hands-on activities. Students are encouraged to explore all opportunities and activities. The left hand side of the brain is logic based and the right hand side of the brain fosters creativity and critical thinking. Our activities develop both sides of the brain by boosting up every child’s imagination.


Every child is on their own journey of development when exploring and learning new things. To discover new concepts by “doing” is a wonderful way for children to learn and apply their knowledge to a variety of scenarios.

Teenage Courses & Workshops

Columbus Teenage Section is devoted to second-level students and meeting their current needs. Our language Classes with emphasis on Oral and Aural are provided by tutors who are also native speakers who come from the Galway Gaeltacht and from Gaelscoileanna. Columbus Club provides Teenage Workshops in Photography, Animation, Illustration/Comic Books & Sketching during the Summer months.

Students take home everything they bake and cook each day. All the recipes used for the Baking Section of the Cookery & Baking Workshops are from our recently published Columbus Club Baking Books.
