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.

Over the past week we have been visited by a number of 5th class Primary School children as part of our 'Chriost Rí Welcoming Programme'
The young students were accompanied by their teachers and they really enjoyed the experience of visiting a secondary school, where they took part in a number of class activities.
Our team of School Mentors helped make them all welcome and were an invaluable source of information and guidance to the younger students.
Pictured here are a number of the Mentors themselves.
They were a credit to their families, their school and to Ms Cryan who guided and advised them,
Well done lads here. We are very proud of you all.

Míle Buíochas , lads,
During the past week there has been a History Exhibition in the Library based on the years 1916 to 1923.
It was very impressive and well viewed.
Our thanks to Mr Paul McGrath who arranged and organised the exhibition.
Pictured here are two students from 3rd Year , Darren Mac Sheoin and Stíofán Ó Murchú, who were also taking part in a No-Uniform Day in aid of St Vincent de Paul.
Well done to everyone concerned with both events.
Finally, we got he Transition Yeas together following their tournament.
Well done to all concerned today.
Ba dheacair é a shárú - It would be hard to beat that today
Here we see the victorious 5th Year winners of the Tarraingt Téide , with their mentor Mr Fergus Ó Dubhgháin
We have had a wonderful few days with the Health Activity Week ,organised by Ms Celine Mac Gabhann, Ms Ciara Nic Craith and Mr. Brian Ó Cochláin.
The Transition Years are pictured in the heat of battle with their Tarraingt Téide.
The 4th and 6th Years took part in a Tarraingt Téide as well (might be worth a Stewards Enquiry!!!)
There was also a soccer tournament for the 4th Years.
Overall the weather was great and the lessons of a healthy lifestyle were taken to heart.
Well done to all , between teachers and students
