Message from Principal & Deputy Principal
On behalf of the school community, welcome to the official Scoil Aireagail, Ballyhale website. We invite you to browse our website where you will learn about the special qualities of our school and the outstanding all-round education we offer.
Choosing a post-primary school is an important decision. We believe that choosing Scoil Aireagail will be a decision you will not regret. This is a school that is built on high expectations and support to achieve those expectations. Here every person is treated as a valued member of our happy, vibrant learning community.
The mission of Scoil Aireagail is to engage students in their education in a way that enables each person to reach their full potential and enter society as a responsible adult. The level of care and support for students in Scoil Aireagail is evident both inside and outside the classroom and in the relationship between all partners in education including parents, students and teachers. This is also seen in the provision of the Cairdeas Mentoring Program which provides the first year students with guided support and continuous mentoring by trained sixth year students.
Through the provision of a comprehensive curriculum, we provide a holistic education in which each student is valued, and their individual needs are recognised and catered for. We successfully implement our Academic Monitoring programme, a system which ensures each student is given valuable one-to-one feedback on her academic performance in order to help them to improve and reach their potential.
In nurturing a passion for excellence, the educational experiences offered to students go far beyond the confines of the classroom. In partnership with parents, the board of management and school staff, we work to develop well-educated, confident, balanced young people who are outward-looking and able to meet the challenges of life with common sense, integrity and resilience. We look forward to welcoming you to our open night on Thursday 20th October from 7-9pm where you will get to experience the richness that our school has to offer in action.
If you are a current parent or student, I hope that this website provides you with up-to-date information on the school. If you are a prospective parent, you are welcome to contact us for further information concerning enrolment. Finally, if you are a past pupil, please renew your contact with us. You will always be part of our Scoil Aireagail family and we would love to hear from you.
Helen McTighe, Principal
