Board of Management Awards Night

March 2014

It gives me great pleasure as Principal of St. Mary’s College Naas, to welcome you to our school website, which we hope will inform and enlighten you with regards to all aspects of our rich and varied school life. We are an all girls, post-primary Catholic school in the trusteeship of CEIST, and are inspired by the educational vision of the Venerable Catherine McCauley and the Mercy Tradition. 

We at St. Mary’s college have a proud tradition of academic and sporting excellence. This tradition is bolstered by a comprehensive academic curriculum and a vast array of extra-curricular activities delivered by a team of professional, dedicated and committed staff whose goal it is to enable each and every student to reach her full potential. We value education and set our standards high for all members of our school community, to include parents, students and staff alike. Due to this we have a high participation rate in Colleges and each year many of our students go on to become recognized for their academic and sporting achievements through scholarships in third level colleges both at home and abroad.
We also realise what a crucial role the school plays in the life of the student and indeed in that of the wider community. Society is changing at an unprecedented rate and never before has the need for a holistic education become so vital. In an age of increasing materialism and secularism it is our intention to provide our students with a superior level of personal, spiritual and academic support. We aim to not only provide our students with the academic qualifications necessary for personal fulfillment and prosperity but to also foster an innate sense of peace, spiritual awareness and a sense of dignity and purpose which can only lend itself to the holistic development of each student.
Our goal is that each and every one of our students feels supported, respected and valued as an individual within a caring, inclusive and compassionate school environment. It is my hope that as you browse through this website you will discover a vibrant school community, greatly supported by our Board of Management and a very active parents council and characterized by an atmosphere of warmth and vitality where our pupils are active, secure and most importantly happy throughout their educational experience here with us at St. Mary’s College.
