College Ethos

Firhouse Community College was established in 1982 to meet the

second-level, educational needs of the local community.  As teachers,

we commit ourselves to work to fulfil this purpose with dedication

and professional expertise.

 

We acknowledge and value the support that we receive from the Board of

Management and from Dublin Dun Laoghaire ETB. We acknowledge

and welcome the active support that we receive from parents in all

aspects of school life.

 

As a co-educational, non-selective, multi-denominational school, we

Believe in the principle of education for all. We value the uniqueness of

each member of our school community. We are committed to equality in all aspects of school life.

 

As educators, we are mindful of, and sensitive to, the changing needs of

students as they grow towards adulthood. We commit ourselves to care

for our students and to provide for their wellbeing.

 

We also commit ourselves to care for our colleagues.

 

We endeavour to carry out our work to the highest standards .We strive

to create a positive, respectful atmosphere that is conducive to teaching

and learning and the personal development of every member of the school

community. For this reason we expect our students to share and uphold

the values of our school.
