Student Welfare

St Colman’s Community College prides itself in it’s aim to achieve the highest possible standard for each student but, at the same time, never loses sight of the need to look after the personal welfare of students.

The highest standards of discipline are maintained at all times and our highly committed staff are mindful of the need to take a personal interest in the welfare of their students.

The school boasts a modern canteen facility where healthy hot and cold food options are available to all students.

St Colman’s C.C is fortunate to have retained the services of a qualified Guidance Counsellor to provide advice and support in the area of planning for entry to third level education and for counselling where necessary.

The Home School Community Liaison coordinator at St Colman’s is actively involved in promoting the educational interests of students by fostering close links between the home, school and local community.

Our learning support teachers work with students where additional help is necessary.

Each class group is assigned a Class Teacher who endeavours to get to know the girls and boys in their class and to take a special interest in the group.

The Year Head works in close contact with the class teacher for each group and takes responsibility for disciplinary matters, attendance and performance.
