Fáilte romhat go dtí suíomh gréasán Choláiste Rís, Dún Dealgan.

On behalf of our school community I would like to welcome you to the website of Coláiste Rís Secondary School. We are a Co-educational Catholic secondary school under the trusteeship of the Diocese of Armagh. Coláiste Rís is currently home to approximately 520 students and 40 teachers. Founded by the Irish Christian Brothers in 1869, the school has played a pivotal role in the education of the youth of Dundalk and its hinterland.

Our aim is to enable students to achieve their full potential in a positive and caring atmosphere. We provide a wide range of subjects at Junior, Transition and Senior Cycle levels. Coláiste Rís has a long tradition of academic distinction and our past pupils have excelled in their chosen careers. A unique feature of our school is the Irish Stream, which offers students the opportunity to study through the medium of Irish if they so desire. In addition, we provide a broad range of sporting and extra-curricular activities, which help to focus on the social and personal development of our students.

This website will provide you with an insight into the range and variety of activities available in our school. It is the generosity and professionalism of our teaching staff and the vitality of our students that makes Coláiste Rís unique. I hope that you find this website informative and helpful. Should you require further information please do not hesitate to contact me.

Slán go Fóill. Tá súil agam go mbainfidh tú leas agus taitneamh as an suíomh.
