Physical Education Equipment Drive 2018

Dear Parents/Guardians and Students,

We are starting our first annual physical education department equipment drive.  Following is more information about the drive.


The purpose of the physical education equipment drive is to collect and gather material that can be used to enhance our physical education & recreation leisure programs at Donabate Community College.


The physical education drive will last through the months of January and February.


We will be accepting items that are in excellent working condition which can be used for physical education & leisure/recreation.  Below is a list of equipment that would be most useful to us.

The 3 R’s:  

We aim to ‘Reduce Reuse Recycle‘ so please do not feel that you need to buy any new items.  We are looking for items that you no longer need or use. However, items should be in good working condition. Items donated for this drive will not be returned.


Students should drop off all donations by 8.30 each morning to the PE area OR arrange with PE department an adequate time to drop off larger items.

Many thanks in advance for any help you can give us!

Kindest regards,

The PE department.
