Castle Street Upper, Tralee, Co. Kerry

Today we celebrated Presentation day. We joined Father Sean virtually in celebration of this special day in our school.
Nano Nagle founded the Institute of the Charitable Instruction of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, on Christmas Eve, 1775, in Cork, Ireland. This foundation was the fruit of more than twenty years of loving service to the poor of that city where she had founded her first school as a lay woman, in 1754.
Nano responded to the needs of her time and developed an educational curriculum suitable to her students. Today, Nano Nagle is regarded as one of the great pioneers of Catholic education. Her work laid the foundation for a voluntary school system in Ireland. Her spirit and tradition inspire the Presentation Philosophy of Education.
