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.

    Rivalry before the County Football Final 2017

     
    On Sunday 15th,  the Cork County Senior Football Final takes place in Páirc Uí Chaoimh between Nemo Rangers and  St Finbarrs. 
    It is a unique occasion for Coláiste Chríost Rí as , over the years, Nemo and the Barrs have provided the back bone of many a school,football and hurling team.
    Next Sunday is really interesting as it puts our Senior Hurling trainer Jamie  Burns of the Barrs in direct competition with Paul Kerrigan of Nemo who trains our Corn Ui Mhuirí side. Despite the club rivalry, the two lads give a huge amunt of their time for the benefit of the students in the school.
    Another dimension to next Sunday is the fact that Paul teaches Cillian Myers Murray, son of Fionnán, and who is part of the St Finbarrs panel next Sunday.
    We could not leave the occasion go by without wishing all the lads involved evey success.

    Sports Day 2017

    Today was another great occasion in the school calendar.

    We had our sports day and the entire school took part.

    There was athletics, hurling and football skills, as well as golf skills. 

    There were some serious , (and some not so serious!!) efforts at the long jump.

    In summary it is a great day for everyone, whether taking sport seriously or not.

    One special moment  - the annual Eoin Deasy Perpetual Trophy for Athlete of the Year went to James MIntern and was thoroughly deserved.

    Congratulations to James and he joins some illustrious company.

    A great day again and well done particularly to the First Year students.

    They really enjoyed themselves.

    (Here we see Andrew MaGowen trying his hand at the Hurling Challenge.)
