Principal’s Address

Welcome to the Ursuline College Sligo website.

We, the staff, at Ursuline College Sligo, work hard to provide an all-round education for the students who attend our school. The philosophy of Ursuline education is based on the teachings of St Angela Merici, foundress of the Ursuline congregation.

St Angela was a remarkable woman. In her writings, she emphasised:

  • Personal relationship with God
  • The holistic education of each individual
  • The dignity and uniqueness of each person
  • The importance of courtesy and kindness
  • The fostering of courage and confidence to live in justice and truth
  • The encouragement of a caring and respectful attitude towards self, others and the environment.

Within this context, we encourage students at Ursuline College Sligo to reach their academic potential, develop their gifts and talents, acquire self-discipline and leadership skills and become responsible guardians of our planet.

We appreciate the thoughtfulness, creativity, graciousness and honesty, along with the hard work, self-discipline, enthusiasm, caring and initiative of the students of Ursuline College who enhance the well-being of the school community.

Staff and students together work hard to achieve the aims of the College.

With every good wish.

Sr Mairead O’Regan
