Show Racism The Red Card Entry 2018
Well done to everyone involved in the SRTRC project. This is a whole school initiative and incorporates the Vision, Mission Statement and Inclusive Nature of our School. This project is going forward to the National Finals in Dublin later this month.
The video depicts the story of their creative project. The narration was composed by a student, which tells how we believe that the tree is symbolic of human diversity and how we share common values. It celebrates how our shared roots support our growth as individuals within our wider community.
Our Music Teacher, Ms. Mulcahy composed the piece of music which you can here throughout the video.

These are very exciting times for our students, their families, our dedicated staff, our interim board of management, LCETB and the local community.
On welcoming the opening of Mungret Community College Cllr. Daniel Butler (Chairperson of the Interim Board) said ‘I would like to acknowledge the great commitment of the board of management to get us to this point. In particular I would like to pay tribute to the diligence of school Principal Liam O’Mahoney ably assisted by Deputy Principal Helen Ryan in delivering a school ready to open within a tight deadline. The education of our community’s children is in great hands.’
Our Board has worked tirelessly over the last six months to ensure that our campus was ready to open on time. We thank each member of the board for their hard work, positive attitude and dedication which has been crucial to the schools development.
We would like to wish our dedicated staff many years of happiness and success in our school and thank them for the efforts they have put into the school prior to its opening. To our incoming students we hope that their expectations and dreams can be realised in a warm, caring, safe and happy environment.
