Education, in the fullest sense, is concerned with the development of the spiritual, intellectual, creative and emotional potential of each person, and Catholic education seeks to achieve the fully human development by modeling itself on the Person of Jesus Christ. The Christian Brothers’ School in Ennis is a Catholic school and consequently it endeavors to educate its pupils in accordance with the Christian principles outlined in the gospels.
The management, staff, and pupils of the school continually and constantly endeavour to cultivate an atmosphere within the school, which is imbued with the Christian sprit of concern and caring for each other. The dignity and worth of each person, from the senior staff member to the junior student, is valued – not because of gift, rank or age – but because they are persons and God’s children. The difficulties of the one are the concerns of all. Parents and prospective parents should be fully aware of the Christian character of the Brothers’ School in Ennis. They should feel at ease with the aims, ideals and Christian values of the school, the student feels insecure and consequently the student’s education is hampered. Parents are, after all, the primary educators of their children – hence the necessity for their values and those of the school to be in accord.
