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.

The school had a wonderful achievement last week when our Senior Science Team , under the expert guidance of Ms. Susan O Connell, won the Cork Regional Heat of the U.C.C. Science Competition, as part of Science Week 2017.
This is yet another great success for the school and in commending the lads and their parents, we particularly congratulate Ms O Connell whose efforts and achievements here are remarkable.
Pictured below are the entire panel of young scientists. We actually entered three teams in all.
The winners were Luke Quigley, Michal Szarkowicz and Max Chopivskyy.
Our second team of Josh Burton, Saroj Khatari, Luke Hanley and Cathal McGreal finished ninth , followed closely by Tomás Manning, Paul Barry and Ucha Naradishvilli in eleventh.
This was undoubtedly the reward for many hours of hard work and we are very proud of everyone involved.
We are absolutely honoured today that one of the 2017 Leaving Cert Class, Barry Lynch, has been awarded a UCC Quercus Entrance Scholarship on the basis of his Leaving Certificate results.
A presentation will be made to Barry by President of University College Cork, Professor Patrick O Shea, another of our esteemed past pupils, on November 28th.
We are immensely proud of Barry.
Not only is he a diligent and earnest student, he is a geuine 'all-rounder'.
He visited the European Parlaiment (meeting MEP Mr Sean Kelly) as part of his Transition Year in 2015. This visit is pictured below with Barry , on the bottom left of this picture alongside some of his class as well as teachers Gavin and Kevin Foley.
He also delivered the introductory sppech to the incoming First Year Students at our Open NIght.
We congratulate Barry and his family for this momentous achievement. We thank him for his contribution to the life of Coláiste Chríost Rí and we wish him every success in his future endeavours.

Well done to Mr Gavin Foley and all the students involved.
Today we offer our sincere congratulations to Marek Zbanski who qualified recently to represent Ireland in the Sir Otto Lund First Aid competition in Belfast. This a first for the St John's Ambulance Corp in Cork, of which Marek is a valued member.
We absolutely salute Marek and this achievement comes as no surprise to anyone who knows him. In fact, he is a driving force behind our Green Schools Committee and addressed the parents recently at our Open Night.
Congratulations to the Zbanski family and to Marek and St Johns Ambulance Cork Division as well.
