PUPILS from almost 40 countries are enrolled in Dublin's newest second-level school.
Adamstown Community College, which can cater for 1,000 students, was officially opened yesterday by Children's Minister Frances Fitzgerald.
The west Dublin school, which opened in 2010, already has 190 students on its rolls, with a further 160 signed up for this September.
As well as Ireland, the nationalities of students and their parents cover much of the globe, including Ukraine, Afghanistan, Canada, Hong Kong, Zimbabwe, the Philippines and Malaysia.
Developed and managed by County Dublin Vocational Education Committee (VEC), the €14m college is one of the most modern and best equipped schools in the State.
