North Bay Educate Together National School (NBETNS) opened in September 1990 with 26 pupils and a principal teacher.

Since then the school has grown to 238 pupils, 14 teachers, classroom assistants and an administrative principal.

The project to create a new multi-denominational school was started by a group of parents committed to the principles of Educate Together who found that there were no places for their children at North Dublin’s only other multi-denominational school in Glasnevin.

The greatest problem was to find a suitable premises.

The search took four years but thankfully it was worth the wait and the present building was acquired.

North Bay is one of the more fortunate project schools to have a modern purpose-built school building.
