As Principal of Ardscoil Rís it gives me great pleasure to welcome you to our website which I hope will provide you with a flavour of life here in our school.

A holistic education is the core principle of life in Ardscoil Rís, Limerick where the highest of academic expectations are balanced with a broad co- and extra-curricular programme for our students.

As befits a Christian Brothers’ school, under the trusteeship of the Edmund Rice Schools Trust (ERST), a strong Christian ethos is central to life here in Ardscoil Rís. We strive to have the values of the Edmund Rice tradition fully realised in our students, as they journey towards independence and finding their place in society as fully-rounded young men.

We do this in partnership with our parents where we acknowledge the role of parents as the primary educators of their sons. We find it a great privilege that so many parents entrust their sons’ education to us.

Tom Prendergast.
