Welcome to Salerno Secondary School. Salerno is an all-girls Catholic secondary school, under the trusteeship of Le Cheile, meeting the needs of 650 pupils. The school is located on Threadneedle Road in Salthill, Galway, having relocated from an old property in Revagh Road, Salthill, in 1981.
Principal, and a Sister of the Jesus and Mary Congregation, I am proud to be leading teaching and learning in a school which has built its ethos around the faith traditions of our Foundress, St. Claudine Thevenet.
Our school is one which fosters an integrated education where each individual is valued and respected. As a school community we recognise that young people are the hope of tomorrow and we aim to support and guide our students taking into account their particular talents and circumstances in life. It is indeed a time of change, not only in education but also in attitudes to traditional values. I look forward to working with you as we embrace change, not for the sake of it, but, to improve our society and the way we live, learn and work.
Our school welcomes you. As student, parent or educator you are a valuable member of our community as we work together nurturing our young people, promoting our school as the centre of learning and excellence that it is, and establishing a safe place where each individual is encouraged to grow in knowledge and appreciation of their own traditions.
Sr. Gerarda Lawler, Principal
