Ethos

 

Every organization has a different ethos. Corpus Christi is a school with a catholic ethos. It is a community of children, parents, teachers, and the broader community who work together in the spirit of the Gospel. Our values are those of the Gospel and we try to model and promote them in all interactions between pupils, between pupils and staff, between parents and staff and among staff and management itself.

 

Corpus Christi school is under the patronage of the Catholic archbishop of Dublin. The policies and practices in the school are inspired by the Christian values of respect, community, justice, faith, commitment, forgiveness, excellence, compassion and dignity. The school transmits a philosophy of life inspired by belief in God and in the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. We aim to make the school a centre of excellence for teaching and learning in which high professional standards are maintained and where pupils can learn in a safe and secure environment.

 

Religious Education is part of the school day and every year the children are prepared for the sacraments of First penance, Eucharist and Confirmation. The girls also participate in liturgical celebrations such as Christmas and Easter. Significant school events such as the opening of the school year and graduation for the 6th class pupils are marked and celebrated with school masses. We work in close co-operation with the parish and the wider community.
