A Student’s Prayer at the Beginning of the School Year
Loving God, inspire me with courage and hope as I embark on this New Year. Through your loving kindness bless the unfolding journey of my precious life. Grant me wisdom to successfully negotiate my way forward. Give me the ability to respond positively to the opportunities that come my way. Reassure me when I find life difficult and especially when I feel like giving up. Help me to reach out to others and encourage them along the way. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
Sunday Times August 27th 2017
Salerno has been ranked the top school in Connacht this year and ranked 3rd out of 400 schools nationally. Salerno is the only school in the top ten that is not a fee paying school or a Gael Choláiste. In the article that accompanied the official rankings, Sr Gerarda highlighted the fact we do not have academic awards in the school, rather we celebrate individuals and what they can accomplish. “..bringing out the side of (our students) that makes them shine and builds confidence, self-esteem and resilience.” Sr Gerarda also noted that we have a very transparent admissions policy. “We don’t choose students. We embrace them all, which is the true meaning of being a Catholic school.” The Salerno Community is proud to acknowledge this affirmation of our hard work and has been overwhelmed by the response from students, parents and staff past and present to this wonderful achievement.
