Spiritual Needs

In keeping with the Christian ethos of the founding Trustees, we at Ardscoil na Mara endeavour to meet the spiritual needs of all our students. To this end, Religious Education is regarded as an integral part of our programme and a very important subject throughout school. Prayer services are held periodically throughout the school year.

Bonding days / Retreats help students to confront the many moral problems presented by modern society. Our ultimate goal is to assist in the moral and spiritual formation of our students, so that, as discerning adults, they may participate in life to the full.

Students’ Council

The Students’ Councils are representative and consultative bodies which play very important roles in the life of the current schools. They work in partnership with management, staff and parents to contributing to the effective running of the schools. The Councils give opportunities for students to develop leadership skills, learn about election procedures and gives them experience of working as part of a
committee. The Council is where students bring ideas, suggestions and concerns to be discussed.

Parents’ Council

Ardscoil na Mara recognise that the whole education process is a partnership, co-operation between home and school is vital. Parents are encouraged to support the aims and philosophy of Ardscoil na Mara. The school offers opportunities for open communication so that both parents and school work together.
Parents play a very important role in the life of the school. There is a Parents Association, which elects the parents’ Association Committee at its A.G.M. The Association Committee sits for two years. This committee meets once a month, during school term time, to organise fund-raising and discuss matters arising in relation to school policy.
The Parent Association is a support for the school.
