St. Kilian's Community School, Ballywaltrim, Bray

School Crest

The motto on the crest of St Kilian’s is criss firinne immib, meaning “a belt of truth (or righteousness) around you”.

This sentence of Old Irish is taken from a ninth-century manuscript written by Irish monks in Würzburg Germany, where our partner school is located.

The school’s first mission statement was: "St. Kilian’s works to ensure that each and every pupil is enabled to learn to the best of his/her ability and to mature with confidence and dignity".

We still strive to do this.
