Retirement

Congrats to Principal Michael Killeen and teacher Patsy Costello who recently retired from Coláiste Mhuire.

We greatly appreciate the great legacy that both leave behind and wish them health and happiness in their retirement.

Wellbeing

Encouraged by our recent CPD day on wellbeing in Junior Cycle, the staff and students look forward to the continued implementation of wellbeing into all aspects of our school life. The mission of JCT Wellbeing is to promote wellbeing, a sense of satisfaction and happiness. It is an inclusive approach couched in the indicators of Wellbeing: active, aware, connected, resilient, responsible and respected. Staff have committed to ensure that through learning in wellbeing, students develop the knowledge, understanding, skills, capabilities, and attributes that they need for human flourishing. There is a recognition that a sense of wellbeing and connectedness is vital to academic, social, emotional and physical wellness and resilience of young people. The staff at Colaiste Mhuire want students to experience opportunities which are designed not only to raise their awareness of future choices, but also raise their expectations and aspirations. Wellbeing will be a game changer in our Education System. We are excited for positive change, whilst understanding wellbeing is a Whole School Project and a Community Endeavour is needed!
