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 proud tradition of debating in Coláiste Chríost Rí. Many people will remember the incredible contribution of Mr Tony Power over the years. Its great to see Mr Gavin Foley and the English teachers continue the tradition.
Here we see the Coláiste Chríost Rí Debating team that competed recently in Mount Mercy Seondary School.
We have Wojciech Szarkowicz, Churchill Isibor, Marek Zbanski, Odhran Breathnach and Muhammad Ali.
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.

The Corn Ui Mhuiri, Senior Football Muster Colleges got underway today and we started with a good battle against Coláiste Choilm , Ballincollig.
Chríost Rí shaded a very tight game by a single point 1-14 to 1-13.
Well done to all players involved as well as to Mr Kerrigan and Mr Coughlan.
Here we see Ronan Dalton and Fiachra Ó Cróinín ready to contest a throw-up from the referee.
The Under 16 Hurlers performed heroically last week, losing a tight game against Ballincollig Community School but we have a small video to mark them and also to praise their contribution to the school.
Hard luck lads and well done.
Each year the Lord Mayor of Cork visits the school.
This is a proud tradition and one of the highlights of the year for our students and staff. Long may it continue!!
Last week , the present Lord Mayor, Cllr Tony Fitzgerald took time from his very busy schedule to visit the school where he was welcomed by our Students Council as well as by our Principal Micheál Ó Ciardha. The visit is pictured below.
We thank the Lord Mayor for paying us this honour and we wish him every success in his year ahead.
