Coláiste Chríost Rí – A Presentation Brothers Schools Trust (PBST) school
Coláiste Chríost Rí is an evolving Christian community committed to the ministry of Catholic Education. We cherish highly an ethos based on Gospel values. We pursue especially academic and sporting excellence within a unique Gaelic culture and tradition. We seek to promote full participation in all aspects of school life, bringing about the balanced development of each person. Our vision is Christian and Gaelic.
On our school crest, these aspirations are encapsulated in the motto, "Adveniat Regnum Tuum". Go dtaga do Ríocht is an acknowledgement of the need for God's grace and power to be experienced as a strength in our personal lives and in our shared lives with others. The challenge for our culturing and Christening community is to respect the personal dignity of all, to value equally every person and to give pupils, parents and teachers a sense of belonging.
Central to this challenge, is our belief that in all aspects of education excellence is the basic ingredient in the ethos of Coláiste Chríost Rí. Our Curriculum tries to maintain a creative balance between preparation for the workplace and the development of the person. We acknowledge the decisive role of parents as partners with management and teachers in this educational endeavour.

Its the type of scene you could get on a Christmas card but this was the scene in the Chríost Rí school yard and field today. Just one for the archives.
Best to all
In the current academic year alone , Coláiste Chríost Rí teams have achieved excellence in every arena. We are Simcox Cup Cork Colleges Football Champions, Senior Science Competition All-Ireland Champions and once again on Friday 23rd of February, we became Munster Cross Country Champions.
None of these could be achieved without the comittment of the students, parents and teachers so we thank everyone for these great moments.
That said, congratulations now to our senior Cross Country team on becoming the 2018 Munster Cross Country Champions.
On a very steep and tough course, our senior team put in another outstanding performance.
They were led home by Charlie O' Donovan in second place. He was closely followed by the team of Jack O' Connor, James Mintern, James Allen and Lee Moore, (pictured here)
To take home the gold medals at this stage is a massive achievement and all in Chríost Rí are proud of these great athletes.
Congratulations to Ben O' Connor who ran a fantastic race in the Junior Boys category and achieved a very high standard.
Thanks to Mr Kelly and Mr Haynes as trainers as well as to Mr. Herlihy for driving to and from Waterford and also to Ken Nason for all his assistance throughout the season.
We offer our sincere congratulations to the Senior Maths team of Tomás Ó Mainín, Michal Szarkowicz, Luke Quigley and Josh Burton, (pictured during the competition) on a fantastic performance in the All-Ireland Maths Competition in Maynooth today.
The team finished fourth with a great performance.
To qualify initially was an incredible achievement but to put in such a superb performance makes the entire school community justifiably proud.
We further congratulate Ms Susan O Connell for her huge committment to her students and the school. In commending the students, we also thank their parents for their constant support and encouragement,
