Yellow Flag


North Monastery Co-educational Secondary School , holds the distinction of being the first secondary school located in Cork City and County to receive the flag promoting interculturalism, equality, and diversity.

Our school boasts a vibrant and diverse community, comprising over 22 nationalities such as Ireland, Poland, Ukraine, the UK, Etheria, Nigeria, Lithuania, Latvia, Romania, Japan, China, and many more. While English and Irish serve as the primary languages of instruction, our campus resonates with a rich tapestry of 23 languages and dialects, including Polish, Portuguese, French, Spanish, Chinese, Latvia, Romanian, and Lithuanian.

We were initially honored with the flag in 2014, and subsequently in 2018. To uphold the values it represents, our school adheres to an 8-step program, encompassing Anti-Racism training, community engagement, curriculum development, and policy initiatives.
