donate to a
friend's fundraiser


Adamstown Community College

All neurotypes in our school are equally valued; however, to ensure that we meet the needs of all our students, The Parent's Council are actively fundraising so the school can develop a specially designed room that will cater for students with gross motor and sensory needs.  Students who are autistic, neurodivergent, or have social emotional, communication or behavioural issues in school experience higher rates of mental ill-health if they are not supported (Fort et al. 2021); however, those who are supported experience increased well-being and happiness.  We envisage that around 10% of our school population will require the use of the gross motor and sensory room on a daily, weekly or monthly basis. 



Thank you for the opportunity to introduce our wonderful school to you. We are so proud of our staff and students and all they accomplish, but we constantly strive to improve. One of the areas that will help our students and provide them with the capacity and resilience to deal with life's challenges will be the installation of a gross motor and sensory room. We believe this will enable them to express the best possible version of themselves and empower them with the potential for greater success and achievement.

where your money goes

The Special Needs Education team will purchase equipment as funds are raised, prioritising what will have the most positive impact based on the needs of our students. An external consultancy firm and specialist provider of sensory room equipment is also collaborating on this project to ensure we have the best possible advice.    


Under the patronage of the Dublin and Dun Laoghaire Education and Training Board (DDLETB), Adamstown Community College opened in September 2009 with 69 students and currently has an enrolment of 950 students. As a new town, Adamstown has a diverse and ever-changing demographic, and our school educates students from over seventy countries who speak an array of languages and come with a myriad of life experiences.. At ACC, we view our diversity as our strength and take pride in celebrating our differences in an inclusive and caring environment. Our mission is based on our shared values and inclusive practices to empower all our students to strive to reach their full potential.
