About our school

At Clonard College, education is where the spirituality of our students is fostered, our students’ strengths are known, cultivated and celebrated through a broad range of opportunities and extracurricular offerings. Everybody is a somebody at Clonard. We place equal importance on care for students’ wellbeing and their academic learning success. A Clonard education gives our young women a sense of social justice and a voice to make a difference in the world. It is an education where the leaders of tomorrow are formed. It is an experience where friendships are formed for life. Our motto ‘Strength and Kindliness’ gives a sense of our mission, and we strive to develop in young women the capacity to understand and contribute to the world. Our dedicated staff encourage our students to become creative and confident future leaders, through a tradition of promoting academic success while nurturing a strong sense of social responsibility.

At the heart of our College community is a commitment to nurturing  faith. As a Kildare Education Ministries School in the Brigidine Tradition, we continue the traditions of our founders, the Brigidine Sisters, by responding to the following values:

  • Wonder: Celebrating all that is good with joy and gratitude
  • Courage: Speaking and acting with integrity
  • Hospitality: Welcoming all
  • Hope: Bringing a sense of purpose
  • Compassion: Walking with and having empathy for all
  • Justice: Making the needs of the vulnerable paramount
