Stella Maris a shining star in Limerick education

The Stella Maris School has this week unveiled its new sign.

STELLA Maris School, a new independent primary school in Limerick City, officially unveiled its new school sign last week.

Students, parents, and teachers gathered to celebrate the occasion at the Windmill Street school.

The Stella Maris School opened in September 2022 with the aim of providing authentic classical Catholic education to the children of the Mid West.

School principal Richard Casey said his school provides a learning environment that ensures excellence based on classical education principles, ultimately centered on the person of Jesus Christ.

Mr Casey is also a doctoral student in Mary Immaculate College, where he is studying the educational philosophy of Saint John Henry Newman.

“We believe that we are providing the best possible education in Stella Maris School, and are so thankful to our students, parents, teachers, volunteers, and benefactors for making this dream into a reality for our students,” Mr Casey asserted.

The students of Stella Maris School exhibited some of their learning by reciting a poem about the Eucharist, before proudly singing the Marian hymn, ‘Star of the Sea’.

Guest of honour, Councillor Emmet O’Brien spoke  at the unveiling about the importance education has in forming future generations. The councillor praised the inspiring performance of the children, saying that it brought a tear to his eye.

Stella Maris School is an independent school, meaning it receives no governmental financial support. Enrolment for the school is currently open, and those wishing to learn more can contact Mr Casey on [email protected].
