Principal Notes for Summer Term

Dia Dhaoibh Go Léir
Welcome to  the Principal's News Update

Public Meeting Held in the Clayton Hotel on Tuesday, May 13th 2014.

If the attendance of city council candidates at the recent meeting held in the Clayton Hotel held by Renmore School is a measure of public interest, then the plans to redevelop the school campus will certainly come to fruition sooner rather than later. 
The Campus Redevelopment Steering Committee presented a comprehensive and compelling argument for the replacement of the permanent and temporary structures and the redevelopment of the campus.

Citing details of some of the history of the school, Malachy Thompson Chairperson of Scoil Chatriona Junior, demonstrated that the current building fabric was past end of life and must be dealt with in the near future, otherwise it will impinge on our ability to continue the excellent service for which the school is renowned and widely respected.

Patricia Coleman, Principal, Junior School, gave a comprehensive overview of the demographics and catchment area, paying particular attention to population growth and increasing enrolments in the school. Remore is much more than a school for the immediate community, but supports a wider hinterland as a centre of excellence for children with a learning disability.

Michael Carroll, Chairperson, Senior School, outlined the financial impact that the building is having on the operation of the school, and indicated that a favourable return on investment could be achieved that would be cost beneficial as well as enhancing the educational experience of the pupils.
Marianne Brady, Principal, Senior School, outlined the activities undertaken in the past as well as demonstrating through photographs how the school would benefit from investment.

The following candidates for the city council election were in attendance:
Declan McDonald, Margo Kelly, Conor Burke, Alan Cheevers, Mike Crowe, Terry O' Flaherty,  Noel Larkin and Mairead Farrell.  
All expressed their strong support for the project, which the steering committee acknowledged and appreciated, stating that they would be delighted to avail of the additional support that they can bring to this endeavour.

Ar aghaidh linn ar son ár bpáistí uilig.

Le gach deá ghuí.
Patricia Coleman
