The motto of the Teresian Association across the world is “Joy, Fortitude & Love”. Here in The Teresian School Dublin we incorporate this ethos into every aspect of school life – from the classroom to the hockey pitch and on all of our outings – joy, fortitude and love form the foundation of our mission.
The Teresian School is a Catholic school under the trusteeship of The Teresian Association, a group committed to living Christian values in their family and working life. The Association was founded in 1911 by St Pedro Poveda in Spain and is a Private Lay Association of the Faithful. In setting up the Association Pedro Poveda found inspiration in St Teresa of Avila as someone who embodied the Christian and human ideal, “eminently human while belonging fully to God.” The Association runs a number of schools in Spain, Latin America and the Philippines, together with the school in Dublin.
