Mission Statement

Our Lady’s Secondary School is a Voluntary Catholic Secondary School operating according to the traditions of the Sisters of Mercy. As such we are a holistic centre of development and learning where each person is special and treated as such. We, the staff and students, enjoy working together to realize our full potential in a healthy, safe, stimulating and friendly environment where the atmosphere is one of mutual respect, cooperation and challenge. Christian community is our heritage and goal, the Good News of the Gospel is our story.

School History

Our Lady’s Secondary School came into being in 1971 with the amalgamation of St. Mary’s Boys’ Secondary School and Meán Scoil Mhuire, Clochar na Trócaire. Enriched by both traditions the school community is a happy, united group, proud of past achievements and striving for future goals. Our most cherished inheritance is the close bond that exists between teachers and pupils.

Our Aim is that each student leaving Our Lady’s will know and appreciate his/her own dignity and worth and those of others and will embrace life’s challenges positively, having had the opportunity during his/her school-life to develop his/her talents and to realise his/her potential.

Co-education takes account of the movement in society towards integration and equality of opportunity. In the context of the school this means that all students, girls and boys, have the opportunity to avail of tuition in all subject areas. Furthermore, it offers them that opportunity in a natural, healthy environment and facilitates the attainment of high academic standards by both sexes.
