Here at Coláiste Fionchua we aim to ensure that each student entrusted into our care is given every opportunity to fulfil their potential, both academically and individually. We have a proud tradition of providing a high quality educational experience to the students of Mitchelstown and the surrounding areas. This is achieved by encouraging and challenging our students to fulfil their potential, providing a comprehensive academic curriculum and promoting a wide-ranging programme of extra-curricular and co-curricular activities.
The philosophy of Coláiste Fionchua is one of inclusiveness in which the college supports the principles of partnership, equality of access and participation in the school. We have in place a wide range of measures to support students as they travel on their educational journey at Coláiste Fionchua.
An underpinning principle of Coláiste Fionchua is our ethos of working in partnership with all members of the school community: students, parents, teachers, Board of Management and the local community.
Our active Students Council and vibrant Parent’s Association are essential to Coláiste Fionchua life and very much a part of our inclusive approach towards education.
