Welcome to our School Website

Principal’s Welcome

Dunshaughlin Community College was established in 1933 and is part of the Louth and Meath Education and Training Board. Our College is a co-educational post-primary school catering to an ever increasing population growth within the greater Dunshaughlin area. A comprehensive academic curriculum is promoted in addition to an extensive programme of extra-curricular activities.

The College saw a huge transformation in 2013, when the building of the modern extension was completed. Our challenge is to set standards which will command the respect and the pride of the community. Aspiring towards excellence, creating high expectations, developing a holistic approach to education and instilling a sense of pride and respect among parents, pupils and staff are among our goals. We pride ourselves in providing a high quality education to all of our students, inspiring them to develop their abilities to their full potential. All who are associated with our College are focused on our success and on providing a quality education for the youth of the community which we serve.

Our students are encouraged to actively partake in the leadership of our College through their participation on Student Council, Senior Mentor and Senior Prefect programmes. The role of our student leaders is to represent the views, concerns and aspirations of the student body, working in partnership with school management, staff and parents for the benefit of the College and the student body. This ensures that our College is student orientated and adapts to the ever-changing needs of the students.

The philosophy of Dunshaughlin Community College is one of inclusiveness. We respect diversity, parental choice and equality. Parental involvement in all aspects of our development is an essential and appreciated part of our College. Parents are represented on the Board of Management and there is an active Parents’ Association. Our mission statement underlines our philosophy of fostering self-esteem, a positive attitude towards learning, the promotion of responsible behavior and the encouragement of dignity and respect in all our endeavour.

Mr Shane Foley
Principal
