CASTLECOMER COMMUNITY SCHOOL


Ours is a Community School with a number of features which distinguish it from other types of second-level schools. The school is managed by a Board of Management which is the statutory body responsible directly to the Department of Education and Science.
As a community school it is our responsibility to provide a comprehensive range of programmes and subjects which enable all students of the community, both academically and otherwise, to reach their full potential. As our mission statement emphasises, all those who live in our area are welcome to participate in the education we provide. Since education is not merely a matter of academic achievement, we also put considerable emphasis on the spiritual, social, physical, civic, cultural and creative development of each student.
The spiritual ethos of our school is that of a Christian community which welcomes members of all religious denominations and ensures that their beliefs are catered for.

Wellread Programme

We are delighted to announce that we have received the "wellread" award, an initiative designed and organised by the Professional Development Service for Teachers (PDST). It aims to create heightened awareness about the importance of creating a culture of reading in school communities for our young people as part of their personal and academic development. The school community is now recognised nationally as a school that promotes and encourages a culture of reading.

You can read more about the award on the PDST website by clicking here, and you can find out more about our school initiatives under the "extra-curricular" tab above.
