Principal's Address


Principal's Address


On behalf of the pupils, staff and Board of Management, I would like to extend a warm welcome to St Colman’s N.S. Clara.

St. Colman’s N.S. is a wonderful school community and a real pleasure to lead as Principal since 1997.

I am very proud of the partnership approach to education that exists in our school with staff, Board of Management and parents working in harmony  for the educational welfare of all our children. In education success can often be measured by that indefinable character of any school – its ‘atmosphere’. The whole staff of St. Colman’s N.S. should be very proud of their role in creating the atmosphere that is so regularly commented on by visitors to our school.

On our school website you will find information about our school and our pupils, as well as school policies and procedures.

The school comes alive each day when over 220 children arrive bursting with energy, character, attitude, good humour and confidence. The children of Clara turn our spacious building into a hive of activity. It is a very busy school.

I hope that you enjoy browsing through our website and that you will sense that the school belongs to and dances to the beat of the children.   

Yours sincerely,

Richie Mulrooney
