As Principal of CBS Dungarvan, it is my pleasure to welcome you to our website.  Here you will learn about our wonderful students and our school.  Moreover, you will get an insight into the spirit, vibrancy, and strength of our school community. 

CBS Dungarvan is one of the leading providers of secondary education in West Waterford.  Founded in 1807, our school is part of the Edmund Rice Schools Trust (ERST).  Life in CBS Dungarvan is guided by the five key principles of the Edmun Rice Schools Charter: 

  • Nurturing faith

  • Promoting partnership

  • Excelling in teaching and learning

  • Creating a caring community

  • Inspiring transformational leadership

We work in close partnership with our parents/guardians & are fortunate to have an active Parents’ Advisory Council who play a central role in the overall development of the school.  Together we pride ourselves in being a caring, learning community.   At CBS Dungarvan, staff, students & parents are encouraged to involve themselves fully in all aspects of school life.

We have a team of highly qualified, dedicated teachers who work diligently to support students of all abilities.  In CBS Dungarvan, the student is at the centre of teaching and learning where the focus is always on the holistic development of every student to reach their full potential.  Students are encouraged to be active, engaged learners who take ownership and responsibility for their learning.  Student leadership and student voice are very important in the daily life of the school.

Our education programme is wide and varied, offering students a range of subject options, both practical and academic.  In addition, we offer a large number of extra-curricular activities in which all students are encouraged to participate.  We set high standards in all that we do and urge students to work hard, reach their goals, seek help and be sensitive to the rights and needs of others.  We have had many successes to date and look forward to many more in the future.

I hope you enjoy exploring our website.  Thank you for taking the time to consider entrusting us to provide a second level education for your son.  Finally, may I invite you to visit our school to experience first hand what CBS Dungarvan has to offer and what makes it so special.

Agnes Guerin,
