St. Kevin’s Community College is a Dublin and Dún Laoighaire Education and Training Board school situated on the Fonthill Road in North Clondalkin. We have 365 students mainly from the Quarryvale and Balgaddy areas. We have students from a variety of countries.
St. Kevin’s Community College is administered by a board of management. The board takes an active interest in all aspects of school life. It is supportive of all the endeavours and achievements of staff, students and parents. It ensures that sound and relevant policies are produced and implemented. As stated in the recent WSE/MLL report, members of the board “show a strong commitment to the school and indeed the local community and a very good awareness of developments in the school, both academic and pastoral.”
Our Motto in St. Kevin’s Community College is: EXPECT THE BEST
