“The characteristic spirit of our school is based on the vision and values of the Le Cheile Charter. It is underpinned by a philosophy of education that has at its centre the unique dignity of the human person as a child of God.”
Le Chéile Secondary School has developed an articulation of our school ethos by looking at the teachings of the Catholic Church on Education, recent documents from the Episcopal Conference in Ireland, the Le Chéile Schools Trust Charter, the Gospels and Department of Education documents.
We surveyed teachers, students and parents re. their values and we tried to distil from all this information what we really stand for.
Ultimately we work from our animating principle: God is Love. Love is Here. This principle permeates all that we do and say at Le Chéile. Our Shared Purpose, root beliefs and core values show how this animating principle is put into action - please see above graphic for more information.
