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.

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.
On Friday last, we had a Christmas jumper day but one man stole the show completely.
Joe Hegarty really got into the Christmas Spirit and was the best dressed man by a mile !!!
Judge for yourself how well he did in the picture here with Micheál O Ciardha , Príomhoide , both in the winter sunshine!!
As we come up to Christmas, we would just like to wish everybody involved in the Coláiste Chríost Rí community the very best for Christmas and New Year.
One of the Transition Year students, Nathan Sugrue who ha a real talent for film making has put together the video here and we thank Nathan for this.
To everyone, A Happy Christmas and a healthy New Year ahead
Coláiste Chríost Rí are All-Ireland Science Champions!!
On Saturday 25th of November, the All-Ireland Science Competition was held in the Tercentenary Hall of the Biomedical Sciences Department of Trinity College Dublin.
A total of fifty teams took part from fourteen regional centres all over the country and the team from Coláiste Chríost Rí emerged victorious.
This is a momentous victory for the school but, given the work and effort put in to this and given the calibre of students and teachers involved , it is well deserved.
We thank Ms Susan O Connell whose tireless and inspirational work supported the students throughout. She really is a force of nature and we also acknowledge the other science teachers in the school whose commitment and enthusiasm was also rewarded on Saturday with this achievement.
We thank and congratulate the students involved, Luke Quigley, Michal Sczarkowicz, and Max Chopinskyy. , pictured here with Ms O Connell and Mr Micheál Ó Ciardha (Priomhoide)
We also acknowkedge the huge support of the parents here. This has always a been a bedrock for the school - one that is hugely appreciated by our staff generally.
This is a very proud moment for the school and it follows two scholarship announcements from Universities in America and Ireland last week.
Congratulations to everyone involved in these great successes
