Dia duit a chara,

The Big Day is Almost Upon Us!

It is a very exciting time for Stella Maris School, as we prepare to open the doors of our school to our new students this Monday, 5th September. This new Catholic education project has been started to glorify God, honour Our Lady and to help save souls. We will achieve this by providing an excellent Catholic classical education to the students of Stella Maris School. This school is truly one of a kind in Ireland, and we are delighted with all of the excellent work that has already been completed in order to make this school a reality!

We ask you to keep our school project in our prayers at this most exciting and important time. With the help of God, we will be able to provide a quality Catholic education for many students over the coming years, so these students may then grow up and glorify God by how they live. It is good students, like those attending Stella Maris School, that will help bring Ireland back to the faith in the future. Let us keep praying for one another, let us keep supporting one another and let us keep sacrificing in order to make Stella Maris School a shining light in Irish education!

Second Parents' Information Meeting

After a very positive first meeting with parents on the 27th May, a second information meeting for parents was held in Assumpta House on the 4th June at 12pm. This meeting, like the first, was full of interested parents and various other stakeholders.

All members of the Board of Directors spoke at the meeting, with the principal, Mr Richard Casey, providing a presentation on authentic Catholic education, the roots of classical education and the advantages of sending children to Stella Maris School. The presentation was extremely well received by those in attendance, and a question and answer session followed.

Important points regarding policy development, school funding, and recreation were all discussed. The future success of the school was entrusted to Our Lady, who is the patron saint of Stella Maris School.
