The Le Chéile Schools Trust is a collaborative trust set up initially by twelve congregations. The Trust will carry out the increasingly complex legal and inspirational role of the Patron previously exercised by the congregations. In setting up the Trust, the congregations wish:

• To affirm their commitment to the future of Catholic Education.

• To provide for the needs of the students and communities in their schools.

• To honour their partnership with the government in the education system.
