Connecting to the Community

In St Ronan’s we aim to:

  • encourage a spirit of generosity and care for others
  • encourage children to look outside of their own needs and to think of others
  • give children a practical way of expressing Christian charity

To enable us to do this we will have one major appeal each term. At this time we support;

  1. St Vincent de Paul in the first term
  2. Trocaire in the second term
  3. a local charity nominated by the staff


We also have established fantastic relationships with many of the post-primary schools in the Newry and Mourne area such as St. Mary’s High School, Sacred Heart Grammar School and Abbey Christian Brothers’ Grammar School. Many pupils have volunteered to help children throughout the years the schools have been working together. Each year we have pupils from school seeking work placement and volunteering for tutouring and mentoring roles within the school.
