Coláiste Chríost Rí – A Presentation Brothers Schools Trust (PBST) school

Coláiste Chríost Rí is an evolving Christian community committed to the ministry of Catholic Education. We cherish highly an ethos based on Gospel values. We pursue especially academic and sporting excellence within a unique Gaelic culture and tradition. We seek to promote full participation in all aspects of school life, bringing about the balanced development of each person. Our vision is Christian and Gaelic.


On our school crest, these aspirations are encapsulated in the motto, "Adveniat Regnum Tuum". Go dtaga do Ríocht is an acknowledgement of the need for God's grace and power to be experienced as a strength in our personal lives and in our shared lives with others. The challenge for our culturing and Christening community is to respect the personal dignity of all, to value equally every person and to give pupils, parents and teachers a sense of belonging.

Central to this challenge, is our belief that in all aspects of education excellence is the basic ingredient in the ethos of Coláiste Chríost Rí. Our Curriculum tries to maintain a creative balance between preparation for the workplace and the development of the person. We acknowledge the decisive role of parents as partners with management and teachers in this educational endeavour.

    Congratulations to our Leaving Cert Students

    Everyone in Coláiste Chríost Rí took immense pride , as usual, in all our Leaving Cert 2019 students. The lads produced some outstanding results and two in particular stood out.

    Here we see Aindrias O Liatháin ans Seaic O Conchúir , both of whom achieved over 600 points ( Aindrias with 625 and Jack with 613).

    Like all of our students, these young men are a credit to their families and to their school.

    We wish everyone well in their chosen college courses and careers in the years ahead.
