Our 3 Year Strategic plan was officially launched in Glanmire Community College last Friday morning which will commence immediately for the school over the next 3 years to 2022. GCC is now 20 years old, has recently opened a new extension and had the largest ever number of enrollment applications to 1st Year for the 2019/2020 school year.

Special guests were treated to a beautiful ceremony with motivational speakers from the School management, Principal Mr Ronan McCarthy and Deputy Principal Mr Seanie McGrath, the students Council representative, Cian Pierce and Maurice O Mahony of Pinta Consultants. Guests were also treated to several stunning musical interludes from a selection of music students in the school, mentored by Ms Ann Mannix.

Here in GCC we are committed to providing a high quality educational experience for all of our students and to seeking excellence in all aspects of school life.Our Strategic Plan will provide clear direction for the management, the staff and other stakeholders as to the agreed priorities for the school over the coming years.

The consultation process with all stakeholders in the school was facilitated by Mr Maurice O Mahony of Pinta Consultants who assisted and supported the school to formulate a plan that will guide us through areas for improvement and development in the coming years.
