school motto

Nurturing Minds, Inspiring Futures

Colaiste Mhuire is a co-educational school established in 1997, continuing on the proud tradition of secondary education in Buttevant commenced by the Mercy order in the late 19th century. It is under the auspice of Cork ETB. We are a Christian School committed to instilling Christian values in our students. These values are part of the everyday atmosphere and environment of the school. We are a Centre of Education and work in partnership with the Board of Management, Teachers, Auxiliary Staff, Pupils, Parents and The Parents Association.

Our purpose is to prepare young men and women for today’s world. We want our students to leave school with self respect and respect for others.

We are proud of our small school status and can boast that every teacher knows every student and students are given individual attention in small classes.

We are proud of our reputation for academic excellence but also seek to develop fully student’s intellectual and physical potential. We hope each student leaves school capable of taking his/her place in the world and in society with an outlook that is emotionally, socially and intellectually developed.

  • Positive interaction between teachers and pupils, between home and school is encouraged.
  • Students self worth is fostered in a positive and disciplined environment.
  • We strive to make our school a safe and secure place where each student is accepted unconditionally.

We strive to prepare students for the challenges of Third Level Education and the World of Work by offering the most modern facilities and equipment as part of a wide curriculum for the Junior and the Leaving Certificates.
Colaiste Mhuire students have excelled in their various walks of life over the years and our aim is that the school continues to play its part in this excellence of achievement.
