St. Paul’s Secondary School joined Le Chéile Catholic Schools Trust in 2011.
There are 15 religious congregations in the Trust, whose aim is to carry on the legal, financial and inspirational role of trusteeship that has, up to now, been done by individual congregations. It carries out the legal and inspirational role of trusteeship.
This is a significant development in Irish education as the Catholic Church and the individual religious congregations renew and reformulate their commitment to Irish education.
The main object of Le Chéile is the development of a vision of Catholic education and overseeing its implementation in the schools. The Trust encourages the preservation of key aspects of the heritage of each founding congregation.
In the case of non-denominational schools, the aim is to promote the integration of human and spiritual values that permit Catholic values to develop.
