Mission Statement

Our mission statement permeates throughout every aspect of school life. Each person in our school is recognised as an individual, with their own characteristics, talents and needs. We have a caring and committed staff, who place great emphasis on the holistic development of students, as well as encouraging all students to achieve their academic potential. The role of parents/guardians is considered to be of great significance to us. Creating an environment where school and home, work together to create the truly unique individual your son or daughter is capable of becoming, is the central aim for all of us. The school community recognises and is grateful for the support from Board of Management, Parents Association and Student Council, in maintaining the unique atmosphere where students can work together in harmony and happiness.


Balla Secondary School is a Christian community where all members grow to value their own worth as persons, their links with their family and the interdependence of all people.

We aim to be inclusive, to provide for the education of the whole person in the fullest sense, to be especially mindful of the disadvantaged and those with special needs.

Members of our school community co-operate in an educational experience which promotes the formation of young people in a value-based, Christian education in the Catholic tradition. However, we welcome students from other religious traditions and we are aware of and sensitive to their needs.
