Welcome to Dún Laoghaire Educate Together National School. Here in Dún Laoghaire ETNS the children are at the heart of everything we do and we are looking forward to working in partnership with you, our parents, to ensure that each child’s learning will be nurtured and supported in a warm, creative and happy environment.
The Educate Together ethos will permeate all aspects of school life. We are an inclusive, equality-based school where all voices are heard. We will equip our children with the knowledge and skills for learning and living in the 21st century – skills of collaboration, creativity and problem solving.
Together we will build a warm and friendly school community where each child is cared for, safe and enabled to achieve and learn to the best of their ability.

Dún Laoghaire ETNS is temporarily located in prefabs on the campus of The Red Door School, Monkstown Grove, Monkstown Avenue, Monkstown, Co. Dublin. We will remain in temporary accommodation on this site until the Department of Education and Skills builds our new school building on its permanent site.
We are delighted to announce that our new school building will be built on the site of the Old Fire Station on Bentley Villas in Dún Laoghaire. This permanent new school building will be delivered by the Department of Education and Skills (DES). This will be a 16-classroom mainstream school. We will also have 2 more classrooms for children with additional needs.
We do not have a time frame for the delivery of the new school building but the school Board of Management is in ongoing contact with the Department of Education and Skills and we have been informed that things are progressing well with regard to our permanent school site. The first step is the transfer of lands from Dún Laoghaire Rathdown County Council (DLRCC) to the DES; this process has commenced and is moving along well. Simultaneously, our school file is with the Design Team in the Department of Education and Skills, and they are beginning to look at how our school will be designed.
When we have further information all parents/guardians will be notified
