Principal’s Welcome

Tiernan O'Donnell (Principal)


Welcome to the Thurles CBS website. Thurles CBS is a school that nurtures and grows the young people that pass through its doors and corridors. We encourage and challenge our students to succeed to be the best they can be. To parents of students hoping to start secondary school with us, we are a lege that recognizes the challenges and opportunities this involves.

As such we provide a strong pastoral care approach, aiming to smooth this transitional period and provide each student with the platform for launching a productive timespan within our school community. For any prospective parent, we are an open and welcoming community and would be happy to meet you to discuss the merits of joining Thurles CBS.

As a school, we strongly encourage the involvement of parents in the school community and our Parent’s Council takes an active and dynamic participation in the life of the school. The relationship between parents and teachers is one of mutual support, concern and respect because just like each parent our teachers want the very best for our students.

Thurles CBS is a school that aims for academic and sporting excellence but there is more to our college, it is a place filled with creativity and energy where we encourage an appreciation of artistic and musical contributions. We aspire to develop our students as rounded individuals, fully prepared for the challenges and exciting opportunities that the future holds for them.

It is with great pleasure and enthusiasm that I serve as Principal of Thurles CBS. I am in the fortunate position of leading an extremely talented staff that is filled with highly qualified, enthusiastic and energetic teachers.

In browsing our site and observing our structures, policies and news, it is my hope you will get a general understanding of our college environment and the educational setting we provide. Should you wish for any further explanation and perhaps desire to see our school in action, please contact us and make an appointment to call in and see our college in action.
