Principal’s Welcome

As Principal of CBS Thurles, I am delighted to introduce you to our new school website and I invite you to browse around and experience a flavour of all the wonderful events taking place in our school and the outstanding rounded education being provided by our experienced, committed and dedicated staff.

Our curriculum is broad and varied and challenges the curiosity of our talented young students who thrive in such a welcoming and happy environment. Our students are successful because they know they are members of a school community where each individual is valued and supported, and where the curriculum offers every opportunity to advance, regardless of ability.

Ours is a ERST school and we always strive to live out the vision of Blessed Edmund Rice, respectful and positive learning environment where every person matters and is listened to. We are committed to providing a Catholic education in the traditions of the Christian Brothers who inspired our students for so many years and set standards which we continuously strive to achieve.

We are supported hugely in our work by our Board of Management, Parents’ Council and Students’ Council. We continue to work in partnership with our parents, our local community and the Department of Education so that no stone is left unturned in helping our students to be the best that they can be.

Kind regards
Tiernan O’Donnell, Principal
