Coláiste Mhuire welcomes all students. It is our objective, having regard to the efficient use of resources, to provide equality of access for all. Our procedures for application are in keeping with the characteristic spirit of the current legislation such as the ‘Education Act 1998’, the ‘Education Welfare Act 2000’, the ‘V.E.C. Act 2000’ and the ‘Equal Status Act 2000’.
Well in advance of enrolment we meet with the parents/guardians of incoming students with special needs including learning difficulties and exceptional ability. Together we discuss the child’s particular needs and through County Limerick V.E.C. we make early application to the Department of Education and Science for appropriate resources.
Enrolment Forms are available from the administration office. As places are limited, it is in your interest to ensure that this form is completed and returned to Coláiste Mhuire on time.
An Aptitude Evaluation day takes place in February each year. The allocation of places is not dependent on this assessment but we find it is of great benefit to us in advising students on their choice of subjects and in monitoring and tracking their progress at 2nd level.
Acceptance by parents/guardians and by the student of the Code of Behaviour is a prerequisite of a student’s admission to the school.
