In 2017/18 we here at De La Salle Churchtown have some major initiatives and we need your support! We will be:
• Upgrading our library.
• Introducing an Accelerated Reading Program.
So what is it and why are we bringing it into our school?
An Accelerated Reading Program’s sole purpose is to increase your son’s reading and learning. It does this by giving each student an individualised reading program that supports and pushes their reading and learning. Improved literacy ability means that your son will have a better chance of succeeding in all subjects across the curriculum and will have greater success in both the junior and leaving certificate.

Last month, five of De La Salle’s 6th year students travelled to Lourdes with the annual Dublin Diocesan Pilgrimage. Dan Slattery, Cillian Carroll, Dennis Byrne, Liam Wall and Fergus Balfe were accompanied by Mr. Forde, who was also a pilgrimage first-timer, for an unforgettable six days.
The school was well represented on the pilgrimage, with several returning past pupils travelling – John Gilligan, Jason Flynn and Eoin Redmond, as well as Schools Chaplain for the Pilgrimage, Fr. Paul Thornton.
Thanks to the hard work of our Deputy Principal, Ms Siobhan Foster and the wonderful staff at paintbox.ie, we are delighted to present our new Prospectus which is available in electronic format.
