Attendance, Attitude & Attainment
On Wednesday, 23rd of January, Scoil Chriost Ri launched the ‘Scoil Chriost Ri has the Right Attitude’ Campaign.
To ensure our students fulfil their potential and achieve success both in the classroom and in life, we as a school, must continue to re-evaluate what we stand for and what we want for our students. If students have a framework for success, we are confident that they can prosper academically, spiritually, physically and socially. Our framework is simple yet effective and that is, that we value Attendance, Attitude and Attainment
To mark this new chapter in the life of our school, a group of Transition Year art students and their teachers created a visual representation of our framework and created large pieces of art work that would effectively communicate these powerful messages in our school. Furthermore, all students were treated to a motivational talk by Mr Eamonn Ryan, manager of the Cork Senior Ladies Football team. Leading the Cork ladies to 7 successive All Ireland titles in 8 years, Mr Ryan had a significant amount to say about success. It was however his focus on the need to have a positive attitude that most resonated with students. Exploring attributes such as resilience, the need to learn from mistakes and the need for attitude not aptitude both in the classroom and in life, inspired both students and teachers alike. Mr Ryan grounded the framework in real life, drawing from his experience of being a father, teacher, manager and coach. Applying our framework to success on the football pitch, Scoil Chriost Ri footballers enjoyed a training session with Mr Ryan and was aptly timed as the senior team were due to compete for a Leinster title 2 days later. No doubt Eamonn’s words inspired them as they enjoyed a fantastic win. Well done ladies!
