Le Chéile Secondary School has developed an articulation of our school ethos by looking at the teachings of the Catholic Church on Education, recent documents from the Episcopal Conference in Ireland, the Le Chéile Schools Trust Charter, the Gospels and Department of Education documents. We surveyed teachers, students and parents re. their values and we tried to distil from all this information what we really stand for. Ultimately we work from our animating principle: God is Love. Love is Here. This principle permeates all that we do and say at Le Chéile. Our Shared Purpose, root beliefs and core values show how this animating principle is put into action.
