Ba mhaith liom fáilte croíúil a chuir romhat chuig ár suíomh agus tá súil agam gur féidir le bainistíocht agus foireann an ionaid cabhair agus tacaíocht a thabhairt duit ar do thuras gairmiúil san oideachas.

I would like to welcome you to our website and I hope that the management and staff of the centre can be a help and support to you on your professional journey. Monaghan Education Centre has grown from the drive and vision of a small group of local teachers. Their hunger for development remains an example to all local teachers, an example which leads us to seek learning in order to provide fulfilling and effective educational experiences for the young people in our care.

To this end, we request that our teachers continue to provide direction to us so that we may provide the supports and learning experiences that our teachers deem relevant to their practice. If at any stage you have a suggestion or an idea that you deem relevant to the development of our educational community do not hesitate to contact us directly or submit your suggestion.

Mar fhocal scoir, guím gach rath ar ár scoileanna agus ar ár múinteoirí uilig anois agus amach anseo.

Le gach uile dea-mhéin,
