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

1st Year Virtual Learning Day Wednesday 1st December 2021

Due to the impact of Covid-19 and the importance of being prepared, we plan to hold a Virtual Learning Day for 1st years on Wednesday 1st December.   They will be staying at home for 1 day only to practice using Microsoft Teams for online learning.  Our other year group have experience of attending online classes from home, so we are only having a Virtual Learning Day for 1st years. 

All classes will run as per your daughter's timetable.  Students will be told that the class will start as close to the school schedule as possible. Please bear in mind teachers are in the school teaching their other year groups as well as online classes and moving to different rooms to facilitate this.  Please be patient if the class does not begin exactly as per schedule.

1st year Students will stay at home this Wed1st December for the day.  Students are asked to use their school device to log into Teams and attend their classes virtually.

Teachers will:

Ask students to turn on cameras

Take a roll call. 

Ask each student to practice turning on and off her camera and mute function

Encourage the student to use the hand symbol if they have a question. 

Cover a piece of work 

Put a homework piece on Assignments for the student to work on independently. 

Explain to students how to leave the Teams classroom when class ends and permission is given.

Any issues of students not presenting themselves or misbehaving online can be referred to Deputy Principals.

We ask that students are dressed and seated at a d​esk.  Please click Here to read our Document on Online Learning before your daughter's Virtual Learning Day    We will explain these protocols to the students during class over the next few days.

Volunteering For All Award

Manor House School participated in the Volunteering for All Award from March 2020. Despite lockdown students in Manor House and the Volunteering for All Committee

completed all tasks and were successful in achieving the award.


When completing tasks to achieve the award we were overwhelmed with the amount of volunteering our students are involved in.  We are so proud of our Volunteering for All Committee and all the students and staff in our school who give so generously of their time and skills to help others. 


The Volunteering For All Award is an award for schools that recognises and affirms volunteering and charitable work undertaken by young people from all backgrounds and circumstances.This nationwide programme is supported by the Department of Justice and Equality and The Department of Children and Youth Affairs. The Volunteering For All Award programme is about recognising and affirming all the volunteer and charitable work that is currently being undertaken by students and staff in their school and communities. 


This award is a demonstration of the spirit of volunteerism, it is not a measure of the quantity of volunteering taking place. It is about celebrating difference and demonstrating that each of us has a positive contribution to make to the place in which we live. 

 

Many thanks to Sean McEwen from Localise who facilitated our work in achieving this award.

Respect for ALL

At Manor House School we foster an atmosphere of respect and dignity for all regardless of a person’s background, culture or skin colour.

What characterises the S.M.G. approach to education is a profound respect for the dignity of the individual and a strong work ethic. Students feel accepted and encouraged and so grow in confidence and maturity.  


We are committed to equal treatment for everyone regardless of their race. We stand with our global community in condemning racism and discrimination.
