Welcome to Naas Catholic Boy's School

As Principal of Meánscoil Iognáid Rís, it gives me great pleasure to welcome you to our website which gives a good sense of daily life in the school.

Meánscoil Iognáid Rís is an all-boys Catholic voluntary secondary school under the Trusteeship of the Edmund Rice Schools Trust, formerly the Irish Christian Brothers. The school is named after the founder of the Order, Edmund Rice.

The school traditionally welcomes students from a wide catchment area and this mix of town and country contributes greatly to the excellent atmosphere which is a celebrated feature of the school.

Our Mission and Aims

The mission/ethos of the school is to provide Catholic education in the Edmund Rice tradition. We strive to create a school atmosphere where faith and Christian values of respect, justice and integrity are nurtured. A feature of our school is the warm, welcoming atmosphere where positive relationships between our staff, parents and students are highly valued and of utmost importance to us.

The school aims to provide the very best education for all our pupils, which is directed at all aspects of maturity. We strive to provide pupils with excellent teaching and learning and we expect each pupil to work hard and to achieve his full potential. Valuing each and every pupil irrespective of ability, special need, background or family circumstance remains an important value in our school. We also value the tremendous support of parents for the school.
