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.

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
We are particularly honoured to publish the photograph below.
Here, either side of Mr Micheál Ó Ciardha, Príomhoide, are two Coláiste Chríost Rí students who have achieved wonderful scholarship success recently.
On the left is Charlie O Donovan who has just signed his Scholarship contract with Villanova University in Philadelphia, arguably the premier athletics university in the USA. Charlie, as well as being a champion athlete, is a humble and articulate young man , one of whom we are immensely proud. First up for Charlie is the Leaving Cert which he will sit in June 2018. We wish him, and his family every success as his career progresses.
Meanwhile, on the right is Barry Lynch, who last week was awarded a UCC Quercus Entrance Scholarship on the basis of his 2017 Leaving Certificate results. Barry is another outstanding character and his academic achievements are matched only by his general positive approach to everything he does.
Needless to say, we are immensely proud of both men and we have no doubt that they will progress in their chosen careers both sporting and academic.
The winners of the UCC Science Competition , Cork Region will go on to the main national competition in Dublin.
We congratulate the, students, their science teachers in the school over the years as well as Ms Susan O Connel.
We wish them every success as they progress in the competition itself
