We at Coláiste Éamann Rís are delighted that you are taking the time to visit our website and we hope that you will find the site informative as it gives you an insight into the wide variety of activities and experiences which make our school special.

Our school derives its ethos from the Edmund Rice tradition. As we step inside our school each day we are reminded of that proud tradition and we are strengthened by the traditions and achievements of those who have gone before us. If we can emulate and enhance the high standards of the past we can build a successful future for ourselves.  Our rich ethos permeates all disciplines and every curricular activity. It strives for a community of students, teachers, ancillary staff and management which attempts to live by gospel values and recognises the dignity of each individual and working for justice and peace in society.

Our staff provide a supportive environment where every student is encouraged to achieve his potential. Our state examination results reflect our commitment to excellence in teaching and learning and the achievement of high academic standards. Regular reports, careful monitoring and an awards system are all part of the culture that encourages each student to achieve his personal best. In addition students participate in a wide variety of co-curricular and extracurricular activities. The emphasis which Coláiste Éamann Rís always placed on Sport continues in our school today. In addition, we encourage all members of the school community to participate in initiatives which promote care for the less well off in our society and the environment.

To parents, students and all who visit our website we hope that it provides you with a positive impression of our school and please feel free to contact us for any further information you may require.

Deputy Principal
