Catholic education aims not only to communicate facts, but also to transmit a coherent, comprehensive vision of life, in the conviction that the truths contained in that vision liberate students in the most profound meaning of human freedom.                                                                                                                                 John Paul II



Slí Chun Dé is a book of Irish prayer services for young people. It was originally published in 2009 by Sr. Mairéad ni bhuachalla. The book has been revamped - now with colour illustrations and is available as an E-Book for use in schools and parishes.

Rockford Manor Secondary School

Rockford Manor Secondary School

Our mission is to provide "A Christian environment where teaching and learning nurture the personal development of every student".

We place great value on the sense of community in our school and actively encourage a warm, friendly and supportive environment. Our educational aims combine academic excellence with a varied extra-curricular programme. We encourage students to do their best in whatever they do, both in and out of the classroom.

Our dedicated teaching staff demonstrate a remarkable care of their students. Their commitment ensures that all our students achieve to the best of their ability.

Here in Rockford Manor we have inherited a rich culture and tradition of education for all from the Presentation Sisters who founded the school in 1958. Many of our students today are daughters of former Rockford Manor girls. We celebrate these links with the past and we look forward to the future .

I hope you will find our website both informative and interesting. We would be delighted to answer any questions you have and invite you to come and meet with us on our annual Open Night or any other time that suits you.

Newpark Comprehensive School

Newpark is a caring friendly school that provides an atmosphere for constructive and creative learning for students of all backgrounds, ethnicities and abilities. It is a supportive and compassionate community in which students are provided with every opportunity to achieve their chosen goals. Newpark is proud to equip its students with a balanced outlook on life, work and leisure.

Care is taken to develop an effective working relationship between teachers and students where respect and tolerance are central. This student centred environment is supported by an extensive student support system of Form Teachers, Year Leaders, Guidance Counsellors, Nurses and Chaplains.

Newpark fosters close links with parents and guardians and has a vibrant Parent Teacher Association (PTA). This group is active in fundraising and providing a forum to support parents. Former students and staff participate in the life of the school through their encouragement and support for various events.

The Newpark Sports Centre and the Newpark Music Centre are located on the campus and are overseen by the Board of Management. Avoca Hockey Club, one of Ireland's oldest clubs, has a long association with Newpark. The wider community is catered for by a large and dynamic adult education programme which runs several nights a week.

A number of courses which reflect Newpark's comprehensive educational ethos are offered: the Junior Certificate Programme; the Transition Year Programme; the Leaving Certificate Programme; the Leaving Certificate Applied Programme and the Leaving Certificate Vocational Programme. A partnership established between the French government and Newpark in 1995 has led to the provision of a European Section for students with a French family background or a potential for language acquisition.
