Welcome to
The Salesian Secondary School, Méanscoil Maria Auxiliatrix, Limerick.



The Salesian Secondary School, Fernbank, belongs to a network of Salesian schools which span the globe and were founded by St. John Bosco to educate young people. The Salesian ideal of education is the development of the whole person in reaching spiritual, academic, social and physical potential.

We rejoice in our achievements of the past, we are proud of the education that we offer our students and we look forward to the growth and the further achievements which our future holds.

You are welcome to our Salesian School.

Extracts from the Whole School Evaluation (W.S.E.) Report:

  • 'On entering the school, one is struck by the pleasant, student-centred visual environment that has been created in its corridors and classrooms. The maintenance of school buildings and grounds is of a high standard and this also helps to create a positive teaching and learning environment.'


  • 'A variety of teaching methods was observed over the course of the evaluation. It was noticeable that students responded particularly well to active learning strategies, to keyword approaches, and to audio-visual stimuli. Students displayed good levels of knowledge and understanding in the subjects inspected.'


  • 'Very good rapport between teachers and students was evident in all lessons and some excellent classroom management practices were observed. Discipline was sensitively maintained and almost all students were attentive, interested and participated well in the learning process. There was evidence in several subject areas that teachers had made efforts to create a motivational print-rich environment to support learning. This is highly commended.'


  • 'The school sets a very high priority on the pastoral care of its students. That care is currently provided through a variety of policies, monitoring structures, curricular programmes, and resources. In particular, the spiritual development of students is well catered for through the efforts of a committed, creative RE department, school masses and liturgies, excellent annual retreats, and the work of the voluntary school chaplain.'
