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.

We have a great tradition of lads coming to Chríost Rí from Ballymartyle, Belgooly, Ballinhassig and Ballygarvan.
Our Corn Ui Mhuirí captain last year was Jack Ryan from Ballymartle who is currently persuing his academic career in University College Cork
Here we have two lads of the next generation Ryan Deasy and Oisin Whyyte
As the build up continues to the County Final, we acknowleded members of other great clubs in the school in a special 'Jersey Day' on Friday October 13th.
Here we have a group of our players from Glen Rovers , another historic Cork club.
Pictured are Ben Heffernan, Billy Clancy-Byrne, Luke Daly and Eoghan Varian
We have a huge contingent of Football supporters in the school and as we anticipate the Senior Football County Final, some of the lads posed in their Nemo Rangers and St Finbarrs gear.
We wish all of the present and past pupils involved on Sunday all the very best
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.
