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.
