History of College
The Salesian College, Celbridge began its existance on Tuesday, 15th September 1981 in a disused primary school on the Hazeltatch Road, which is now the Church of Ireland Primary School. Fr. Tony McEvoy SDB was the first Principal with four staff members and fifty-five students.
In the summer of 1984, staff and students were able to move into the newly built school premises, where we are presently located. The new school and extended sports grounds, situated on fifteen acres, facilitated the provision of a wider subject choice and greather extracurricular activities. This was officially opened on 6th May 1985, the feastday of the school's patron saint - St. Dominic Savio.
There have been two major extentions since then and we are now a school of over seven-hundred students and a staff of over fifty members, with an academic and sporting record of which we are very proud.
