Welcome to our school website where you can find important information about our school and also get a snapshot of what life is like for students in HFCS. Our website reflects the importance of developing the student as a whole. We strive for academic excellence and foster a nurturing climate where students can achieve their full potential. Students are encouraged to become lifelong learners and to continue to third level education. We embrace the opportunity to engage with new subjects and now offer Leaving Certificate Computer Science and Leaving Certificate Physical Education.
We are progressive educators and have embraced technology and introduced the iPad as our educational device and Microsoft 365 as our communication and learning platform. We embrace the opportunity to engage with new subjects and now offer Leaving Certificate Computer Science and Leaving Certificate Physical Education.
Students can take part in many co-curricular and extracurricular activities in the school including athletics, soccer,hurling, chess, coding and debating. Many of our students have achieved great success including winning the National Soroptimist Public Speaking Competition and our mathematics students have represented Ireland in the International Linguistics Olympiad.
The importance we place on developing our students as contributing members of society and as global citizens is evident in the programmes and activities we engage in. These include Development Education, Localise and actively fundraising for charity. Engaging in these programmes and activities allows our students to develop the core values which are at the heart of our school; care, respect, community, inclusion, equality, justice and fairness.
I am privileged to be the Principal of this wonderful school and to be a part of each student’s journey as they prepare to become young adults, equipped to prosper in life. Partnership and working together to achieve the best educational outcome for our students is central to their success. Together, staff, parents, the Board of Management and the wider school community play a key role in developing happy, resilient and competent young people. Please don’t hesitate to contact our school for further information and support. The warmest welcome awaits you.
