The Crest

of Coláiste Choilm represents the vision, which inspires and informs the educational practice of our school.


The Acorn & Leaves

speak of the potential for individual growth and fulfilment in the

here and now and in the future.


The Dove

the spirit of Love and Peace, speaks of a community in which the

growth of the individual is nurtured and celebrated.


Our patron Naomh Colmcille links us to the Celtic Tradition of learning.



In Coláiste Choilm we endeavour to create the context in which the miracle of

growth can happen for each person in our school


Aims and Objectives


•To build a warm, caring, respectful and compassionate school atmosphere

  in which every person feels accepted, trusted and valued.


•To provide a curriculum which caters for the growth of the full person.


•To help students to reach for excellence in their areas of talent and skill.


•To provide an environment in which faith in God’s presence, in the human

   scene and within each person, can grow and develop.



“We plant seeds that one day will grow.

  We water seeds already planted, knowing that they hold future promise.

  We lay foundations that will need further development.

  We provide yeast that produces effects beyond our capabilities.

  It may be incomplete, but it is a beginning, a step along the way”. 

Oscar Romero
