Mobility Patterns that support Community Development
We are a mixed, comprehensive school of 1,100 students. Our school is situated in County Meath very close to Dublin and our parents would have very strong links with the capital. Our school was opened in 1994 on a greenfield site to educate the children of Ashbourne which at the time was a small but growing commuter town with no second level school. The population of Ashbourne would now be 16,000 and growing. We have always been a very progressive school and have been involved in several pilot curricular projects. We have been early adopters of new subjects and programmes and have a proud record of being a school that puts care for the environment at the heart of what we do. We are an outward looking school with a willingness to engage in our local community as well as in national and international projects
We recently received our 8th Green Flag, a national award which recognises initiatives carried out in the school in different aspects of environmental protection. Our Green Committee is one of our most prominent staff-student groups in the school and works towards promoting the importance of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) with a view to empowering our students towards helping to create a sustainable future for all in our community.
