Principal's Welcome
Welcome to the new Coláiste Mhuire website. We hope that you find the site informative and useful. In the coming months we intend to further develop the website. It is hoped that it will become a reflection of the vibrant centre of academic excellence we believe Coláiste Mhuire to be.

We especially welcome two groups at either end of the education continuum: prospective students and their parents and past-pupils that may be browsing to see what's happening in their alma mater.

Coláiste Mhuire has a proud tradition based on the provision of a truly holistic education. At the heart of our success is a team of dedicated teachers and support staff, who are all committed to ensuring that our students receive the very best opportunities the school can provide. Central to this is our aim to provide an education that gives each of our students the opportunity to excel not just academically but also socially, physically, culturally and spiritually. This multi-faceted approach to education can be seen in the breadth of the curriculum offered as well as in the range of extracurricular activities available to our students.

Each class is assigned a tutor; this is a teacher with whom they can identify and with whom they can discuss any problems they might have, and each year group has a Year Head; whose role is more disciplinary. We also provide a mentoring programme whereby Leaving Cert students mentor incoming First Years.

Students have a voice in their school through the Student Council, which provides student leadership. Our committed teachers place a high value on teaching and learning and quality education is all important. We nurture, challenge, support and encourage our students and they in turn respond. Our excellent examination results and subsequent employment is a reflection of this commitment.

Enjoy our website. If you're a past pupil, get in touch we'd love to hear from you.
