Donabate Community College Wins Two Awards

Congratulations to Donabate Community College on the wonderful achievement of not just winning one award but two great awards. Aisling Cleary of DCC gives us the details.

Citizens’ Passport Award for DCC!

Donabate Community College is delighted to accept the Citizens Passport Award for our engagement with Global Citizenship Education.

The Global Passport Award is an acknowledgement and recognition of our school’s contribution, dedication and diligence in implementing Global Citizenship Education into all aspects of teaching and learning.

Our school has played and continues to play, a key role in promoting quality values and principles that reflect a very positive GCE practice and you should be extremely proud of this achievement which acts to honour your contributions and commitment to exploring GCE.

Unfortunately, owing to our current circumstances an Award Ceremony was not able to take place. However, our Green Schools Committee, along with Ms Kelly, Ms Davis and Mr Doyle were delighted to accept the award on behalf of the school. We thank them for their continued hard work in school.



Health Promoting Schools Flag Awarded to DCC

Just before school closures back in March, our school received the Health Promoting Schools Flag, awarded by the HSE.

Unfortunately, due to Covid-19, there was no official ceremony and in lieu of this, Mr Doyle presented the flag and banner to a cohort of the Donabate Community College’s students.

This award is a formal recognition of all the good work that students, staff and the wider community have been doing in the area of Wellbeing.

The areas that the school was examined in were as follows, Environment, Curriculum and Learning, Policy and Planning and Partnerships.

The HSE were extremely impressed with all the work we have done in these areas and the work we are continuing to do.

In many ways, we are leading the way in the area of Wellbeing, and we would like to congratulate all in our school community for their continued engagement and support of our initiatives.
