Wonderful Inspectors WSE Report September 2017

As Principal of Merlin College I would just like to thank the teaching staff, the Board of Management, the parents, and the students for the wonderful feedback we received from the Inspectors yesterday after they presented their findings from their 3 week whole school inspection (WSE) of Merlin College.

For a school that is only in its 5th year it was great to receive affirmation for the incredible work that has been done and recognition for all that has been achieved. I have said it a million times that we have the best teaching staff and best school in Galway and now I feel vindicated- however we are not going to stop here. We are going to become the best school that we possibly can be and will always do our very best for every child that passes through our gates.

Teaching and Learning, a wide and vast curriculum with a strong cohort of specialised teachers, a strong management team, well behaved students and a broad extra curricular programme were amongst the many things acknowledged by the Inspectors along with a positive atmosphere which was very inclusive.

I could not be any prouder; especially of our teaching staff and students.

The Report will be published in November and will be sent to all parents and guardians and put up on our website.

Remember 1st Year application forms available this Monday. Please return before Open Night if possible due to demand (see previous messages)
