Principal's Welcome




On behalf of the St. Louis school community, I extend a very warm welcome to you as you visit our website. Please take time to explore the range of subjects provided, the pastoral care afforded to our girls, the extra-curricular activities on offer and the commitment to excellence in teaching and learning. Ours is a holistic education, where we work in partnership with parents with the focus on the academic and the pastoral.

We encourage all our students to achieve their potential, and we support and nurture them in the pursuit of this goal. Every girl is unique, has different qualities and talents and we encourage them to be the best they can be.

The first St Louis Sisters came to Monaghan in 1859 and since that date the school has provided an education where the ethos of the St Louis Sisters permeates all aspects of school life. Since 2009 we continue this work under the trusteeship of the Le Chéile School Trust.

I hope that our website provides you with a positive and lasting impression of our school. Please feel free to contact the school if you require any additional information.

Go raibh míle maith agat.

Shoe Box Appeal


This year saw the students in St Louis secondary School make a huge effort to prepare shoe boxes for the annual Christmas appeal. The annual Team Hope Christmas shoe Box Appeal encourages people to prepare a box to ensure that all children receive a gift on Christmas Day. This gift will be the only present these children will receive this year. Last year a record 250,000 shoeboxes were delivered to children and this year it is expected that this number will be surpassed. The students in St Louis Secondary School under the guidance of Louise Mulligan, Lay Chaplain are delighted to contribute to this worthwhile venture.

Picture shows some of the students with some of the boxes handed over to the volunteers.



Emma returns to South Africa with the Niall Mellon Trust.


Emma Mc Aree, a fifth year student in St. Louis Secondary School returned to South Africa to volunteer with the Niall Mellon Trust. This was Emma’s second time to make this journey and she had to fundraise to enable her to go. Well done Emma.


This is an account of her experience.


“On Saturday 11th November I joined with 290 volunteers as we embarked on a week of hard work, friendship and laughter , on a mission to build 3 schools in Khayelitsha township in the heart of Capetown, South Africa.


With our 17 hour flight over us we headed to the hotel and immediately on to the site. Over the next 6 days I did everything from painting, to pointing, floating concrete and shoveling cement. All the hard work was easily balanced with the laughter, singing and pure happiness of every volunteer working on the site and with the children attending the schools.


On our site we built 7 classrooms, 1 play area and 1 lunch area. Not only did we build physical classrooms but we built futures for the children who will attend the schools and friendships were made for life over this amazing week. There was a massive sense of pride in every volunteer, foreman and team leader as we stepped off the bus every morning to begin work on the site.


Now that we are home and every volunteer has returned to their own corner of the world, the events of the week are constantly on our minds. I am reliving every action, every conversation and every face I met during my week there. I feel sad and have a longing to return but I know that I have to wait before I can return. I realise that this organization are like an extension of my family and I know it is the best thing I have ever done in my life. Mellon Educate has given me a new perspective on life and for that I am truly grateful.”
