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.

It is a genuine pleasure to congratulate the Senior Footballers on a great win over De La Salle , Macroom, this evening in CIT to become Simcox Cup winners for 2018. It was a fantastic win against an exceptional Macroom side who gave it everything but , in the end, Chríost Rí prevailed with an incredible team performance all round.
On a momentous night, we congratulate everyone involved from managers Mr Paul Kerrigan and Mr Brian Coughlan, to the playing panel, to Tomás Ó Mainín on logistics as well as to the large number of teachers and students who attended the game.
On Saurday next 27th of January, we will welcome the current 6th Class students for assessment.
In terms of the day , we would ask parents and guardians to note the following points.
There has been a great response to the new Computer Coding Class in the school recently.
The programme has been administered by Ms Christine O'Hara-Lyons and has been in operation since before Christmas.
In the class, which takes place each Monday after school, the students study three central components. These are Scratch , which helps develop programming skills and logic, HTML, which is very important in web development and Python, which is used in Maths, Science and Engineering.
This is a great initiative and , judging from the picture here, with Ms O'Hara-Lyons and the lads hard at work, it is working extremely well.
We thank Christine for her great work here and we wish everyone concerned all the best in the future.
We were honoured today to receive a visit from Diarmaid O Briain who recently was awarded with an MA Excellence Scholarship to study for a Masters Degree in Langiuages and Cultures. in Unversity College Cork.
As with all of our scholarship students, this award was thoroughly deserved as Diarmaid has always been great student and a wondefrul ambassador for the school.
Pictured above with Mr Daithí Ó hAodha ,Leas Phríomhoide, Diarmuid progresses with his studies with the congratulations and admiration of the entire school community.
We sincerely congratulate Diarmaid as well as acknowledging his family whose support for the school over the many years has been immense.
