Canal Way ETNS

Welcome to Canal Way Educate Together National School, formerly known as Portobello Educate Together National School. I am delighted to welcome you into our school community. Since opening in September 2013 we have become a vibrant city school that emphasises active learning. At Canal Way ETNS, we are privileged to have a high level of parental involvement which greatly benefits the children.

Our ethos ensures that Canal Way ETNS is a child centred learning environment. All members of our school community, staff, parents, and pupils work towards maintaining our ethos which promotes equality and respect.

Our new name reflects our move this year to Basin Street Upper, Dublin 8 and we are looking forward to many great years ahead in our new location.

If you wish to enrol your child in the school you can find details in our Enrolment section.
