All students and staff are required to cooperate with all mitigation measures in place to minimise the risk of contracting COVID -19 in school. In particular, students should:
- Observe Social Distancing
- Wear a Face Mask at all times where a 2m social distance cannot be maintained
- Wash and sanitise your hands regularly
- Cooperate with efforts to maintain good ventilation within the school environment.
Form 6 students have been encouraged to bring their own packed lunch and to refrain from leaving the school campus during lunch break. This is to support the public health guidance requiring all to minimise contacts and mobility
Students and parents are reminded of the advice from the Deputy CMO with regard to congregation and socialising outside of the school environment. This is especially important on journeys to and from school. Students are reminded to maintain social distance, wear face masks as appropriate and minimise social contacts at all times when travelling to and from school.

St. Mary’s College is a Catholic Secondary School for girls under the Trusteeship of CEIST and welcomes students of all persuasions. We are committed to educating the whole person to her full potential in a caring, supportive and joyful environment in partnership with parents and community.
CEIST (Catholic Education an Irish Schools Trust) is a newly formed organisation consisting of a group of religious orders, including the Sisters of Mercy, which was set up to pass on their educational heritage to lay colleagues. To mark this significant occasion, Oana Gaftoi, (Leaving Cert class of 2009) was selected to undertake a large painting that would symbolise the spirit of CEIST. This painting is now on display on the main corridor and is greatly admired. Many thanks to Oana for all her beautiful work.
