Celebrating Excellence

Ceiliúradh Buach-fheabhas

Coolmine aims to provide an education in its broadest sense for all of our pupils. Our reputation for outstanding academic achievement, excellent sporting / recreational facilities and programmes, fine and friendly discipline, close and continuous contact with families and experienced pastoral care personnel is well established. We promote excellence in all areas of school life. We have three award ceremonies at which we celebrate this.

Annual Prizegiving:

This ceremony occurs in September each year in two parts.  Students who have completed their Junior Certificate attend prizegiving during the school day. Prizegiving for senior students occurs in the evening time. Such attributes as academic attainment, effort, and contribution to subject area are celebrated. Graduates, their parents and teachers attend.

Merit Award:

The merit award ceremony occurs towards the end of the school year. At this ceremony students are saluted for their contribution to school life e.g. contribution to extra – curricular activities, fostering and developing the ethos of the school, contributions to a positive school environment. This ceremony occurs in the evening time and students and their parents are invited to attend.

Sports Prizegiving:

This ceremony occurs in May every year. It is a celebration of our participation and achievements in a huge variety of sporting activities.

Freastalaíonn Scoil Phobail Chúil Mhín ar fhorbairt na ndaltaí trén iliomad cineálacha chuichí sa chaoi is go mbeidh saol sláintiúil acu anois is feasta. Cabhróidh na scileanna a fholaimeoidh siad sna himeachtaí sin leo bheith suaimhneach iontu féin is í measc chomhluadair ar bith a chasfar orthu amach anseo.

Feast of Coolmine Talent:

The now annual Feast of Coolmine Talent is held in January/February each year in Draíocht Theatre, Blanchardstown.  This event celebrates the excellence of our students in music, song, dance and drama.  Students also excel in ‘behind the scenes’ work and in the poster competition in the lead up to the show.  The show runs for two nights with prizes presented on the second night.  Tickets are available from Draíocht Box Office a couple of weeks before the show and all are welcome!
