A most successful Open Evening was held in St. Leo's on the 7th Nov last. Large crowds attended and both parents and incoming students were very effusive in their comments about the school. Many were amazed at the large number of specialist rooms.
Ms Ryan told the incoming cohort of students that they would meet representatives of the management team in the school on an individual basis. This is scheduled to take place on Sat 1st Dec.
The school has just come through a Whole School Evaluation by the Department of Education and Skills known as the MLL. During oral feedback to staff and the Board of Management the inspectors used the word 'exemplary' on a number of occasions when referring to student behaviour subject and lesson plans, our annual report and the quality of student leadership etc.
They were very impressed with the results of surveys of student and parents that clearly demonstrated the very high regard that each of the above have for St. Leo's. They complimented the excellent relationships that exist between management and staff and inter staff relations. They had high praise also for the ancillary staff in the school and their contribution to the school community. However even though the inspection is over, the school Principal M/s Ryan states unequivocally that St. Leo's continues to pursue excellence, day in day out, as demanded by its own mission statement.
