CEIST is the new trustee body for the voluntary secondary schools of the Daughters of Charity, the Presentation Sisters, the Sisters of the Christian Retreat, the Sisters of Mercy and the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart.

CEIST Members Area

The CEIST Members Area is now open with initial access being given to School Principals, Deputy Principals and Chairpersons of our Schools' Boards of Management.

We plan to phase in access to other groups as we further develop the private site. The main objective of the Members Area is to provide an appropriate platform for the sharing of ideas and best practice amongst our CEIST community.

The CEIST Education Office will continue to add useful resources through this communications medium and it is hoped that the Members Area will be of real benefit to our members.

The potential of this private site will only be realised by our members' appropriate use of it, so please feel free to download, upload, set up your own forum groups on topics of interest, etc.


CEIST Fifth Annual Educational Conference 2010

The CEIST Annual Education Conference provides an opportunity for our School Principals, Deputy Principals and Boards of Management Chairpersons to network and share ideas and best practice.

We are holding our Fifth Annual Education Conference this year in the Killashee House Hotel, Naas, Co. Kildare on Thursday 30th September and Friday 1st October.

The agenda for the conference detailing workshops and guest speakers is presently being finalised and will be posted on the website in due course.

Transition Year e-Learning Programme

The transition year e-learning programme exposes students to the exciting world of marketing - the critical factor for business success. Students will learn to analyse and understand their environment, their own buying decisions and the nature of business.

The programme has a strong entrepreneurial bias and encourages students to think up their own business ideas. All materials are devised and written at academic levels specifically suited to Irish second-level Transition Year.
