Our Mission Statement

Presentation Secondary School, Clonmel is committed to offering our students a holistic Catholic Education in a caring environment conducive to learning and personal development.

Our Ethos

It is the aim of our school to provide a programme of education for students that will equip them to meet the challenges that they will face as young adults in the 21st century.

Ownership of the school is vested in a trust body called CEIST. This is a grouping of the secondary schools of five religious orders – Daughters of Charity, Presentation Sisters, Sisters of the Christian Retreat, Sisters of Mercy, and Missionaries of the Sacred Heart. The core values that all our schools subscribe to are:

  • Promoting Spiritual and Human Development
    • We believe a knowledge of and a personal relationship with Jesus Christ give meaning and purpose to our lives.
  • Achieving Quality in Teaching and Learning
    • We are committed to excellence and to continually improving the quality of teaching and learning.
  • Showing Respect for Every Person
    • We respect the unique and intrinsic value of every person.
  • Creating Community
    • Our schools are faith communities of welcome and hospitality where Gospel values are lived and where there is special care for those most in need.
  • Being Just and Responsible
    • We seek to act justly and responsibly in all our relationships.
