New School Building



We are delighted to announce that the much awaited building project for Donabate Community College is now underway. Contracts have now been issued and it is expected that the building programme itself will commence in the spring time. Students, parents, teachers and the community at large are very excited that they will finally have their very own second level school on the peninsula. The building project should take approximately one year at which point students of Donabate Community College will leave their temporary accommodation for a permanent new home.
