Ethos | Coláiste Mhuire

Coláiste Mhuire is an ERST (Edmund Rice Schools Trust) school. Our ethos is therefore shaped by the vision of Blessed Edmund Rice.

Our school promotes equality of access and participation – in other words, children of any faith, or none, at every level of ability, of any nationality or ethnic grouping are all welcome. We recognise the uniqueness of each individual in a caring community where holistic development is nurtured. High educational, developmental and pastoral standards are always to the fore in Coláiste Mhuire.

In addition to the provision of high standards of excellence in teaching and learning, our school upholds a strong sporting tradition, gaelic culture, and ethos of social justice. Inspired by the five key elements of the Edmund Rice Schools Trust Charter, Coláiste Mhuire is responding to a changing world and supporting the leaders of the future to work in partnership, care for the environment, looking after themselves and others equally and be inspirational citizens.

The five key elements of the Edmund Rice Schools Trust Charter are

  • Nurturing faith, Christian spirituality and Gospel-based values;

  • Promoting partnership;

  • Excelling in teaching and learning;

  • Creating a caring school community;

  • Inspiring transformational leadership.

Our students and staff continue to maintain and build our school culture and environment upon these cornerstones.
