Ardscoil Rís Motto "Dilseacht agus Uaisleacht" (Loyalty and Nobility) Established 1969 Principal Brian O'Dwyer Students Approx. 525 per year Grades 1-6 Location Griffith Avenue, Dublin, Ireland Website Ardscoil Rís Ardscoil Rís (meaning Rice's High School) is a boys' secondary school on Griffith Avenue, Dublin, Ireland. The school was under the trusteeship of the Christian Brothers, however they withdrew from Education in Ireland in September 2008 and the school passed into the trusteeship of the Edmund Rice Schools Trust upon the Brothers' withdrawal.[1] The school caters for approximately 525 students every year.[2] Contents 1 History and Expansion 2 Recent Achievements 3 Internet Facilities in Ardscoil Rís 4 Past Pupils 5 Subjects 5.1 Junior Cert. 5.2 Transition Year 5.3 Leaving Cert. 5.4 Principal 6 Activities 6.1 Non-Athletic activities 6.2 Athletic Activities 7 References 8 External links History and Expansion Ard Scoil Ris originated in the O'Brien Institute, which functioned as a private school, in 1969. The new school incorporated the existing second-level students from the old school and day pupils from the surrounding area. Old dormitories were converted into classrooms and an old reception room became the staff room. In 1970 and 1971 six prefab classrooms were constructed. On 21 November 1973 the new school building was officially opened by the Irish president, Éamon de Valera. In 1979 the school won the Hogan Cup, winning the All-Ireland Colleges football title for the only time. No Dublin school has won it since.[3] In 1984 a new wing was added with dressing rooms, showers, a Library and Audio-Visual Room. The school continued to excel on the sports field and most students went on to third level education at this point. In 1998 a state-of-the-art sports hall was completed and officially opened by the Taoiseach Bertie Ahern and Diarmuid Martin, the Archbishop of Dublin. In 1999 six new classrooms were built, a new wing for the library was constructed, and some much needed office space has eased the pressure on space in the school. In 2001 the science labs were refurbished. In 2003 the new computer room was completed. In 2005 the school designated a permanent art room.[4] Recent Achievements Ardscoil Rís is often noted for its academic achievements. In 2005 the school sent more students to Dublin City University than any other boy's school on Dublin's Northside . As a percentage of students taking the Leaving Certificate exam the school topped the list of students provided to DCU. More than two thirds of all Leaving Certificate students went on to third level education that year.[5] In 2008 the school sent 28 pupils to DCU, more than any other school in the state bar the Institute of Education. As a percentage of students taking the Leaving Certificate the figure is the highest for any school in the state.[6] As a consequence the school is vastly oversubscribed with more than 200 students applying for just 100 places for the academic year 2009/10. In Sport Ard Scoil's most recent successes included the U-18 football team being crowned Dublin Senior Football Champions for 2008. A man of the match performance from centre back Aidan Collopy saw the trophy brought back to Ard Scoil. The team was beaten in the Leinster Final by Colaiste Iosagainn, Laois.[7] The U/19 Basketball team reached the 2008 All Ireland Cup Final, which was screened on Setanta TV, however, they lost by three points to St. Malachy's, Belfast.[8][9] In the 2008/2009 Academic Year the school reached the U/18 "B" Dublin Colleges final but was beaten by Oatlands College.[10] Ard Scoil's U/14 footballers defeated Castleknock in the 2008 U/14"A" Dublin Colleges Football Semi Final [11] before going on to capture the title for the first time since 2002, beating Colaiste Eoin in the Final.[12][13] Ardscoil also reached the Semi-Final stage of the 2009 National Senior Concern Debates.[14] In 2010/2011 the school's U/16's won the Dublin football/hurling double for the first time in 20 years while the 1st Year Basketballers won the school's first ever Division 1 East Region title. They later finished runners up in the All Ireland First Year tournament. The title was subsequently stripped from the winners, St. Malachy's, Belfast, for playing illegal players but was not awarded to Ardscoil due to Basketball Ireland regulations. [15] [16] Internet Facilities in Ardscoil Rís Ardscoil Rís has had a fully enabled internet service in the school. A strict Internet usage policy was introduced in 2004 and all pupils wishing to use the internet must sign the policy along with their parents. The policy can be viewed on the school's official website.[17] Past Pupils Ard Scoil Ris has a number of past pupils who have become household names in Ireland and further afield.

Blackburn Rovers and Republic of Ireland midfielder Keith Andrews was also a pupil. Owen Garvan is a first team player with Ipswich Town while Karl Moore is not on the books at Manchester City.
