Holy Rosary College is now under the trusteeship of CEIST (Catholic Education, an Irish Schools Trust).

Five Catholic Religious Congregations engaged in post primary education for over three and a half centuries – Daughters of Charity, Presentation Sisters, Sisters of the Christian Retreat, Sisters of Mercy, Missionaries of the Sacred Heart – have, in the spirit of their Founders, together established CEIST – Catholic Education, an Irish Schools Trust – thus providing a new moral and legal trustee framework enabling their schools to continue to offer post-primary Catholic education into the future as a viable option and as an integral part of the Irish school system.

Religious Education is an integral part of the school curriculum where genuine Christian values of Truth, Love and Justice are fostered. To help achieve this, each class receives two hours per week of Catechetical teaching. Students are encouraged to develop a more mature understanding of and a deeper commitment to their faith by reflection on the Gospel message, by participating in the Church’s Liturgical cycle and by prayer. Opportunities are provided for regular participation in the Mass and Sacraments.

“A Catholic school is not simply a place where lessons are taught; it is a centre that has an operative educational philosophy, attentive to the needs of today’s youth and illumined by the Gospel message.” (The Religious Dimension of Education in a Catholic School).

The school has the services of a school Chaplain who is in the school regularly and is available to meet students.
