Our Mission Statement

Presentation College is, by choice, a truly co-educational school. We aim to prepare all of our pupils, girls and boys alike for the challenges, responsibilities and experience of adult life. All members of the school community - pupils, parents, teachers and other staff - are held in very high regard and their dignity, worth and individuality is respected. We strive to build a sense of community based on Christian values. The school’s Code of Conduct acknowledges this and aims to promote a culture of respect throughout the school. It recognises that good discipline enables good teaching and allows good learning to take place.

Walk it out Wednesday

Walk it out Wednesday is a new initiative to promote exercise for our staff and students. Every Wednesday from 13:35 we will head out into the sunshine for a twenty minute walk. We are blessed to have had a Slí Na Sláinte installed in our school during the last year. Slí na Sláinte is an initiative developed by the Irish Heart Foundation, with the aim to encourage and increase the number of people walking. We hope to break the week a little bit by coming together for a chat and a good clear out of the mind. We hope you will bring in a pair of trainers today and every Wednesday.
