School recognised in National League Tables as we welcome our new First Years

The St. Louis community is delighted with the recent recognition of our combined efforts in the most recent edition of The Sunday Independent League Tables.
The figures demonstrate that 100% of the class of 2017 progressed to Third Level and are blazing trails in their chosen specialisms.

St Louis has always provided a climate for growth of the individual in every sense, and the ethos is embedded in staff’s richly supportive relationships with their students.
We prize student wellbeing and nurture the highest aspirations for each and every individual. Louis girls are self directed, dynamic and well researched on possible career pathways. Our thriving annual Careers Fair has forged links with a wide range of universities offering opportunities for application to both CAO and UCAS and more recently EUNICAS.

Maynooth, DCU and our faithful DkIT proved popular with students. Courses were as diverse as the students themselves with a majority progressing to honours degree courses. We celebrate your dedication and wish you every continued success.

So we welcome your daughters to our Assessment test on Saturday morning and rest assured that your daughter will be nurtured and supported to become a Louis girl, encouraged in the qualities of respect, truth, responsibility, happiness and excellence in a caring and inclusive atmosphere.

First Years start their journey in St Louis

St Louis welcomed our new First Years today. The girls attended an Induction morning where they met Principal Michelle Dolan, Deputy Principal Olivia Sherry and their Year Head Mary Gilmore. The girls also met Dara Mee, head of the school’s Guidance Department, and their Fifth Year Cairde.

There were ice breaker games, an introduction to the New Junior Cycle Specifications and time to get to know each other. Year Head Mary Gilmore  welcomed the girls and expressed the school’s hope that they enjoy a happy fulfilling education, whilst achieving their very best at the same time.

Guidance Teacher and school  counsellor Dara Mee explained to the students that each girl’s journey would be different in the school and that we recognise and celebrate everyone’s skills and talents equally.

The girls will return for their first full day’s teaching on Wednesday August 30th at 8.50am.
