A Message From the Principal


It is a privilege to welcome the students of Donabate/Portrane peninsula to Donabate Community College and an honour that so many parents have entrusted their sons and daughters to us for what is a crucial and special stage of their education. Donabate Community College was established in 2008 under the patronage of County Dublin VEC and it continues to grow and develop as a friendly and supportive environment that embraces each student’s unique talents and aptitudes. The education of the whole person to the highest academic, social and moral standards is the hallmark of Donabate Community College and it is to that end we work in partnership with parents, students, Board of Management and the community at large.

I encourage all students to make the most of their time in Donabate Community College. Get involved in all parts of school life that will nurture your special talents. We rely on you to make Donabate Community College a centre of excellence in sports, arts and academics. We rely on you to contribute to your community as responsible members of society. I welcome all visitors to this website.
