- Ethos and Vision Statement
“The Aranmore Family, enriched by its Catholic tradition & cultural diversity, nurtures in each child a love of life, a passion for learning and the skills to make a difference.”
The motto of the school is TRUST. This ideal is central to the relationship between teachers, parents and children. Aranmore embodies three ideals:
- a deep seated respect for our history
- a strong commitment to those in school at present
- confidence that, through learning and trust, God’s love will continue to enable, enrich and empower our future lives
Our school aspires to create an environment in which each child’s dignity is actively developed spiritually, emotionally, academically, socially and physically. Through this, each child will recognise and respect their own worth as well as the dignity and rights of others.
Aranmore’s distinctive crest incorporates the spirit and history of the school, joining the Sisters of Mercy and the Christian Brothers. At the centre of the "A" is a triangle representing God as Trinity, the Three Divine Persons who are one God of Love. In the centre of the triangle is the Celtic Cross, representing Christ as Saviour and the school’s Irish origins. We continue the commitment of those migrants who founded and built the school with meagre resources.
