About The School



 Is iad na Bráithre Críostaí caomhnóirí na scoile. Bunaíodh Scoil Mhuire sa bhliain 1866, thar céad is daichead bliain ó shin.


St.Mary's Christian Brothers' Grammar School belongs to the international group of schools served by the Irish Christian Brothers, a congregration founded by Blessed Edmund Rice in 1802.

 

 

 

 

('Westcourt' - the Home of Edmund Rice - Callan,
County Waterford)

 The school was founded in 1866 on Divis Street, Belfast.

 

Osclaíodh an mheánscoil i Sr.na Baeirice i 1929.
The Secondary School was opened in 1929 in Barrack Street.

St. Mary's CBGS is now based entirely on the Glen Road campus. This site opened in 1968. A major extension, The Edmund Rice Building, was officially opened and blessed by Bishop Patrick Walsh, a past pupil, in 1997.

 

The School's Ethos
The Religious and Educational Philosophy of St. Mary's Christian Brothers' Grammar School for boys is that of a Christian and Catholic School.

Catholic Education takes place in communities inspired by the Spirit of Christ.

Christ’s commandment to love God and neighbour inspires a caring ethos which is

expressed in relationships within and beyond Catholic schools.

Catholic Education is person-centred. It promotes the dignity, self-esteem and full development of each person who is made in God’s image and uniquely loved by God.

 



Catholic Education is inclusive. It is respectful of, and engages with people of all beliefs; it encourages the religious development of all in their own faith.

Catholic Education is rooted in the Gospel values of Respect for Life, Love, Solidarity,

 

Truth and Justice; it aims to harmonise faith and culture, build a better society and pursue the Common Good.

Together, Catholic Schools provide high quality, rounded education for all young people, so that they develop their full uniqueness and potential.

In Catholic Schools the person and message of Christ find expression in:

· Communities of Faith, Service, Prayer and Worship;
· The development of each person’s full potential in a climate of joy, freedom, respect, challenge, co-operation and celebration;
· The enrichment of pupil life – intellectual, physical, spiritual, moral, social and emotional;
· The promotion of a spirit of charity, social justice, global awareness and concern for others leading to practical outreach and partnerships;
· A culture of tolerance where people of diverse identities are recognised, welcomed, respected and cherished;
· Listening, mutual understanding, trust, reconciliation, healing and peace;
· The preparation of pupils to lead fulfilling and purposeful lives which will contribute to the Common Good.

An tOideachas Caitliceach – An Aisling  

Spiorad Chríost is inspioráid do na pobail ina mbíonn An tOideachas
Caitliceach
lonnaithe. Spreagann aithne Chríost i dtaca le grá do Dhia agus
do do chomharsa éiteas comhbhách ar léir é i gcaidrimh taobh istigh agus
taobh amuigh de scoileanna Caitliceacha.

 

Tá an tOideachas Caitliceach dírithe ar an duine. Cuireann sé dínit,
féinmheas agus forbairt iomlán an duine chun cinn, an duine a chruthaigh
Dia in íomhá féin agus grá ar leith Aige dó.

 

Rud uilechuimsitheach is ea An tOideachas Caitliceach.
Cothaíonn sé meas do dhaoine agus teagmháil le daoine, is cuma cén
creideamh atá acu; spreagann sé forbairt spioradálta an duine ina chreideamh féin.

 

An tOideachas Caitliceach fréamhaithe i luachanna an tSoiscéil maidir le Meas don Bheatha, An Grá, An Dlúthpháirtíocht, An Fhírinne agus
An Chóir; tá sé de chuspóir aige an creideamh agus an cultúr a thabhairt
chun comhréitithe, sochaí níos fearr a thógáil agus Leas an Phobail a chur
chun cinn.

 

I dteannta a chéile, cuireann Na Scoileanna Caitliceacha oideachas cothrom d’ardchaighdeán ar fáil do gach duine óg, sa dóigh is gur féidir leis nó léi a fhéiniúlacht iomlán agus a mhianach iomlán a fhorbairt. 

 

I Scoileanna Caitliceacha léirítear pearsa agus teachtaireacht Chríost trí:

 
  • Pobail a chruthú ina bhfuil áit lárnach ag An Creideamh, An tSeirbhís,
    An Urnaí agus An tAdhradh;
 
  • Mianach gach duine a fhorbairt ina iomláine i dtimpeallacht a chothaíonn
    an lúcháir, an tsaoirse, an meas, an dúshlán, an comhoibriú agus an ceiliúradh;
 
  • Saol an dalta a shaibhriú – an gné intleachtúil, fisiciúil, spioradálta,
    morálta, sóisialta agus mothúchánach san áireamh;
 
  • An charthanacht, an chóir shóisialta, eolas ar chúrsaí domhanda agus
    bá le daoine eile a chur chun cinn i dtreo gníomh a spreagadh agus páirtnéireachtaí a bhunú; 
 
  • Cultúr caoinfhulaingt a chur chun cinn ina n-aithnítear agus ina gcuirtear fáilte roimh dhaoine atá éagsúil ó thaobh na féinúlachta de, le meas
    agus le grá;

  • Éisteacht, comhthuiscint, muinín, athmhuintearas, leigheas agus síocháin;

  • Daltaí a ullmhú le saol comhlíontach diongbháilte a chaitheamh, le leas an phobail.

At key stages, where subject choices have to be made, there is a systematic guidance process to assist pupils in decision making. Regular Parent/Teacher meetings are held to report and discuss the progress of each pupil.

The great majority of our sixth form students proceed to third level education.

Pastoral Care:

The school is organised on the form system and the form teachers have the primary responsibility for the pastoral care of their students. The Careers Department offers advice and guidance to all pupils. There are other forms of support in the School including a Co-ordinator of Special Educational Needs, School Chaplain and trained Counsellors.
