Ethos and Values


Corpus Christi is a school with a Catholic ethos and has the Catholic Archbishop of Dublin as its patron. It is a community of children, parents, families, teachers, and those from the parish who work together in the spirit of the Gospel.  Our values are those of the Gospel, respect, community, justice, faith, commitment, forgiveness, excellence, compassion and dignity. We try to model and promote these values in all interactions between pupils, between pupils and staff, between parents and staff and among staff and management itself.

The school transmits a philosophy of life inspired by belief in God and in the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. It promotes the dignity and self esteem of each pupil as the human person. We encourage the pupils to develop their gifts and to use them for the common good and to develop a more just and tolerant society.

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 provided with the opportunity to prepare 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 liturgies. We have strong links with the local community, sporting organisations and the parish.
