Mungret Community College is a non-designated Community College. In its recommendation to the Minister, the New Schools Establishment Group says the establishment of a new school under the model proposed by Limerick Clare Education Training Board LCETB will increase co-educational provision and provide additional multi-denominational education, resulting in greater diversity and plurality of post-primary provision. LCETB is already Patron to a number of Community Colleges in Limerick City and environs including: Coláiste Ciaráin, Gaelcholáiste Luimnigh, Castletroy College and Thomond Community College.
LCETB was awarded patronage of the new Community College in November last year. The school is scheduled to open to receive First Year students in September 2017 and has a long-term projected enrolment of 800 students. It is a participant school of the Limerick Area Post-Primary Schools Common Application System (CAS).
Mungret Community College aims to foster a community that learns together in a happy, safe, supportive and healthy environment where education is a partnership between School, Home and the Community with the Well-Being of the student at its core.
Mungret Community College aspires to provide an inclusive, nurturing, fulfilling and dynamic educational experience which aims to promote the academic, social, physical, emotional, cultural and moral development of each student.
We are committed to the highest standards of Learning and Teaching, offering a broad and balanced curriculum to empower students to maximise their potential and develop a love of learning in a safe secure positive environment.
The College seeks to cultivate a spirit of justice and compassion for others through fostering a community of respect, integrity, responsibility and concern for others.
These ideals can only be realised in an environment where the dignity of the individual is cherished and there is a mutual respect and cooperation between Students, Staff and Parent/Guardians.
