On Tuesday, March 14th, staff and students in Coláiste Chiaráin were hosts to the Adare and Rathkeale Municipal District Monthly meeting. This was a very informative event in which local politicians were joined by students, staff and American Exchange Students as part of their scheduled monthly meeting. It was a wonderful opportunity for students to witness local politics in action.

The meeting was attended by local representatives, council officials and was chaired by Cathaoirleach, Cllr Stephen Keary.
During the meeting Principal Gerard O’Sullivan took the opportunity to acknowledge and thank the local representatives and council officials for all of their support and commitment. “Great credit is due to our local representatives and council officials, who together with LCETB, helped bring our wonderful new building and campus to fruition. Our school community is delighted to welcome you all to our school and we are excited for the many possibilities that our new building now presents; facilitating this council meeting is a great example of a meaningful collaboration. May there be many more.

As part of this meeting two formal presentation scrolls were made to the school . 
The first scroll was presented to both Coláiste Chiaráin and their partner school, Spring-Ford High School located in Limerick, Pennsylvania. This scroll was presented on the occasion of the 2022-2023 Limerick Ireland to Limerick Pennsylvania student exchange programme in celebration of the 14th year of this Cultural Exchange programme which was established in 2008. In attendance were the 28 students and 4 teachers from this year’s exchange programme.

A second scroll was presented to Coláiste Chiaráin in recognition of the ongoing commitment to the Performing Arts and to mark the production of this year’s school musical “The Wiz” at the Lime Tree Theatre, Limerick.  Over the years Coláiste Chiaráin has been renowned for its remarkable performances of musical theatre. Some past productions include: “ Beauty and the Beast”,The Addams Family”, “Hairspray”, “Little Shop of Horrors”, “A Night at the Musicals”, “We Will Rock 

U”, “Grease”, “The Wiz”, “Oliver!”, “All Shook Up”, “Hi-Tech School Musical”, “School of Fame” and “Back to the 80’s”. This production of ”The Wiz” was such a fantastic show to get the Coláiste Chiaráin students back on stage after a 2 year Covid  absence . The audience were blown away with the immense talent that was on display.

Principal Gerard O’Sullivan expressed his gratitute to the Councillors for both presentations. “We are grateful to the Council for acknowledging both of these very significant school initiatives. Our Limerick to Limerick Cultural Exchange and annual school musical are two stand out events in our school calendar and we are delighted to showcase and celebrate the wonderful opportunities that they provide for our students.”
