Coláiste Abhainn Rí, Callan

Mission Statement

Coláiste Abhainn Rí has come about as an amalgamation of Coláiste Éamann Rís founded by the Christian Brothers and St. Brigid’s College Callan founded by the Mercy Sisters. The values and strengths of both these schools and their strong shared tradition of faith and community will be at the heart of the new school Coláiste Abhainn Rí, as will the richness of the shared religious and cultural heritage of both our present patrons ERST and CEIST.

Coláiste Abhainn Rí values teaching as one of the most important of all human activities. Our school seeks to build a quality learning community that welcomes, and bears witness to the Gospel values of Jesus Christ, expressed through the lens of the ERST and CEIST Charters. These are encapsulated in core values which are intended to support and nourish the lives of the people who are at the heart of our school.
