Deputy Principal’s Message
As Deputy Principal, I would like to welcome all visitors to this website. We place students at the centre of everything we do. In this regard, we believe in learning being at the heart of all we offer, in our ability to create fully contributing members of tomorrow’s society.
Our co-educational approach to learning places emphasis on equal opportunity for all, and provides flexibility in response to an ever changing society. We also encourage mutual respect for one another, while the job of learning becomes a reciprocal experience.
We prepare students for state examinations and provide assistance and guidance to the students in a caring atmosphere that seeks to ensure that each student reaches his/her full potential in these examinations.
Equally we encourage student participation in the arts and in sport. Our wide range of extra curricular activities are a fundamental part of our school endeavours, whether it is on the playing fields, the concert stage, the debating chamber, Green Schools project or elsewhere. You will all find your niche whatever it might be. We have enjoyed great success in recent years winning numerous Connacht Gaelic League and Championship titles, provincial soccer titles and two All-Ireland volleyball titles respectively. We were also crowned national champions in Irish debating and public speaking. While we are very proud of our competitive achievements, student participation is still our main priority. We ensure that all students who want to participate are given that opportunity especially in the Junior years.
The atmosphere of camaraderie, achievement, and a sense of belonging are very evident among our student body and can be observed on a daily basis. There are many opportunities for students to perform in the school and indeed the high rates of participation which occur is a feature of the school's commitment to providing these opportunities.
Once more a sincere welcome to all users of this website and we hope that you can find the information relevant to you as you work your way through it.
