Rathdown School is growing in excellence with the support of our Annual Fund. Through the Annual Fund we aim to provide a unique living and learning environment that will nurture all of the students in the Rathdown Community. Each year, Rathdown families are asked to contribute to worthy school projects, chosen to support all aspects of school life.
Support through the Annual Fund places Rathdown School at the leading edge, allowing us to excel as a top, all girls’ primary and secondary school in Ireland. We want to provide our students with exceptional opportunities to grow and learn in the 21st century.
The Annual Fund Committee comprising of both Junior and Senior School parents, meet to discuss the best ways to utilise the fund and provide enhanced facilities for the benefit of all Students.
