ERST

CBS Ennistymon is proud to be part of the Edmund Rice Schools Trust (ERST). ERST Schools actively promote partnership in 96 Irish school communities. We pride ourselves in the multicultural pluralism that is evident in our schools.

Edmund Rice schools are both inclusive in their approach and respectful of diversity. Our schools promote equality of access and participation - in other words, children of any faith, or none, at every level of ability, of any nationality or ethnic grouping are all welcome in our schools. All of our schools are encouraged to recognise the uniqueness of each individual in caring communities where holistic development is nurtured.

The educational approach in ERST schools is neither functional nor utilitarian, but subscribes to the holistic vision expressed in the following five key elements:

• Nurturing faith, Christian spirituality and Gospel-based values;
• Promoting partnership;
• Excelling in teaching and learning;
• Creating a caring school community;
• Inspiring transformational leadership.
