Principal’s address

Welcome to our website which offers the school community a chance to get a flavour of what we do in Coláiste Muire. As you will see, Coláiste Muire is a vibrant and exciting place to be. We promote an interesting learning environment where students can reach their full potential by participating in a holistic educational experience.

This website gives us as a school the very important opportunity to celebrate our community. Every aspect of our school is acknowledged here.  Every single individual brings something unique to our school community and we value and nurture this. We value our partnership with parents and work closely to ensure the best outcomes for all of our students.

The 2018/19 academic year was filled with opportunities and successes at all levels of participation. We participated in a wide variety of sports and other extra-curricular activities and we achieved success at national level in soccer, basketball, Young Scientist and Young Economist—just to mention a few. Great credit is due to all participants who step outside their comfort zones to participate and compete and to our staff who give so much of themselves and their time to allow for these opportunities for students to participate.
This year for all of the school community was a year of change. In particular, I would like to acknowledge the work of Mr Donal O’ Brien. Mr O’Brien worked as Principal for twenty one years in Coláiste Muire and I wish him every health and happiness in his retirement.
We celebrate our Leaving Certificate students who are coming to the end of their journey with us in Coláiste Muire and starting their own exciting and individual journeys. You will always be remembered and will always be a part of Coláiste Muire, Crosshaven. We wish you every success, health and happiness in your futures.
