Welcome from the Principal

Thank you for taking the time to visit the Manor House website which I hope you will find both interesting and informative.

Manor House is a Catholic Voluntary Secondary School for girls founded by the Poor Servants of the Mother of God (SMG). It is the ethos and educational philosophy of the SMG that informs the way we do things in our school. Manor House is now under the stewardship of the Le Chéile Schools Trust to whom the SMG have entrusted the legal, financial and inspirational role of trusteeship. No matter what area the SMG work in they aim to respect the dignity and uniqueness of every individual. The school reflects this aim by trying to create an environment that demonstrates a concern for the welfare and good of others. We do our best to provide all our students with an academic programme appropriate to their needs within a caring and supportive environment.

Manor House has a six-year cycle, which includes a compulsory Transition Year. It provides a broad range of traditional academic subjects to Leaving Certificate Higher Level and also offers a comprehensive programme of general education, an excellent pastoral care system in addition to a wide range of extra-curricular and sporting activities. I hope that you enjoy your ‘web’ visit to our school and that by the time you have finished browsing you will have a good idea of the many different facets of school life in Manor House.

Mary O'Neill, Principal

2nd years visit a Senior Citizens' Club: 4 April 2017

On 4 April 2017, the 2nd year class 2Q (Kairos) visited St Gabriel's Senior Citizens Club in Clontarf for our CSPE Action Project. We are learning about the rights of the elderly and we wanted to hear the opinions of our local Senior Citizens. We were very interested to hear if any of their rights had been denied. Before our visit, we made a video (which we starred in) to show how we thought a senior citizen living alone felt. We showed this to the club and they were very impressed. We had an amazing time chatting with the club and have gained a better understanding about how they live and how they feel about society today. Many thanks to Eleanor and Frances for helping to organise our visit and of course to the Seniors Club for hosting us! We are also grateful to Mr Montgomery who brought us to the club.
