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

TY Dublin Walking Tour: 23 April 2018

A group of TY history students went on a walking tour of Dublin on 23 April. In the photo below, they are finding out about the old House of Lords. Thanks to Ms Guinan for organising so many walking tours of Dublin this year.

 

Tune in to "A Leap of Faith": 27 April 2018 on RTE Radio 1 at 10pm

Well done to Jenny, Niamh, Deirbhile, Catherine and Nicole (TY students) who participated in a recording of "A Leap of Faith" , a radio programme. This will be aired on Friday 27 April at 10pm. According to Ms Fields, it will be worth tuning in to RTE Radio 1 to hear how eloquently the girls spoke about Donal Walsh and the legacy he left behind. 

Public Access to Law: 21 April 2018

A group of our TY students participated in the Public Access to Law Mock Trial Competition in the Central Criminal Courts of Justice on Saturday 21 April. Our two barristers on the occasion were Sarah Challonner and Jenny O'Brien and our courtroom artist was Aoife Bullock. They had a thoroughly enjoyable experience and by all accounts, they acquitted themselves very well. Another fabulous TY activity! Thanks to Mr Abrahamian for guiding the girls so impressively in their preparation. Unfortunately, the team came 5th on the day, just one mark short of a place in the final. Hard luck, girls! 

 

Table Quiz: 19 April 2018
