Student Supports

The care of each student is of utmost importance to us. Our Student Support Services emphasise the Personal, Social, Emotional, Spiritual, Vocational and Educational development of all students.

Year Heads

Each year group has a Year Head who monitors academic progress and attendance and ensures that the welfare of every student is a priority. Year Heads work closely with parents and are in regular communication with them regarding their daughter’s progress.

 Home School Community Liaison Co-ordinator

The link person between school, home and the wider community. The HSCL Co-ordinator is available to meet parents in the home or in school to address issues relating to students’ educational and personal needs.

 Learning Support

A member of the SEN team is available to meet parents who wish to discuss issues relating to Learning Support and to provide this support to students.

The Student Care Team

The Principal, Deputy Principal, Guidance Counsellor, SEN Co-ordinator, Home School Liaison teacher, and School Completion officer coordinate the student support in the school. Working together with teachers and year heads we try to ensure that every student is safe and secure at all times.

The Guidance Counselling Service

The Guidance Counselling Service aims to offer a full range of learning experiences which are designed to assist students to make choices about their lives. A comprehensive programme is available to students consisting of mock interviews, seminars, visits, aptitude tests, subject option talks, interest assessments.

Social, Personal & Health Education

All students at both Junior and Senior Cycle participate in SPHE. The programme enables students to develop skills for self-fulfillment and for living in communities. It promotes self-esteem and self-confidence as well as providing opportunities for reflection and discussion about the students’ physical, mental and emotional health and well-being.

Big Sister Programme

Transition from Primary school to Secondary school can be daunting. For this reason a training programme is offered to those senior students who volunteer to be a Big Sister to incoming students.
This ensures that each First year will have someone to turn to who will be there for her from her first day in the school and throughout the year.
