Pastoral Care

As outlined in our Mission Statement, in Coláiste Mhuire we take a pro-active, positive, holistic approach to the welfare of each individual student. Our Pastoral Care team includes:

·         Principal·         Student Support Team
·         Deputy Principal·         Year Heads & Class Tutors
·         Guidance Counsellor·         Subject Teachers
·         Chaplain·         Student Mentors*
·         Care Team·         Learning Support

*Mentors – Members of the student body who are trained in leadership and play a constructive role in our pastoral care programme. Mentors are assigned to incoming 1st years to help in their transition from primary to post-primary school.

There is a very good transition programme in place to welcome first-year students into the school with older student mentors assigned to each class, and assistance from the guidance counsellor to ensure that the transition from primary school is effected smoothly. (WSE-MLL: 2012)
