A Message from the Principal

GBC_0517 copyWelcome to the website of Scoil Mhuire, Ballincollig. We are a Girls’ Primary School with 411 pupils currently enrolled.I am privileged to lead a team of very talented and committed teachers and ancillary staff. We are blessed with a commitment to excellence at every level in the school: pupils; staff and parents.

In Scoil Mhuire our girls are educated to a very high standard: they become highly literate, highly articulate, highly numerate and highly creative. They are lovers of sport. We also love the Arts and, as you will see from our website, we have excelled in multiple ways in music, dance, drama, gymnastics…

The girls feel secure and develop a high level of self-esteem. We encourage a strong work ethic. In expecting a lot on a daily basis, high standards become a habit. This was acknowledged in our Whole School Evaluation. The following is a short extract:

“A calm and positive working atmosphere permeates the school environment and good behaviour, mutual respect and diligence of application were evident in every classroom. The professionalism of the staff contributes significantly to this environment of relaxed alertness where challenging learning tasks are possible in low stress busy working situations” ( Source )

You will enjoy our website. It captures the girls in the full flight of learning.
