Educate Together has been awarded patronage of the new second level school for the Dublin South City area, opening in 2018. This is fantastic news and a great result after all the hard work done by the Campaign Committee and the parents from the wider school community over the past years.
We will now have a co-educational, multi-denominational and non-fee paying school in the Dublin South City area. The press release from Educate Together states that the location has not been formally announced yet by the Department. We are meeting with Educate Together over the next few days to discuss the location, admission policies and enrollment and will keep you up to date with any news.
More information available here.
Thank you to everyone!

So we have got formal confirmation from the Department of Education that the site in Sandymount purchased from Rehab is intended to accommodate the second level school (to serve Dublin 2, 4, 6 and 8), due to open in 2018. We are still awaiting a decision on patronage which should be over the next two weeks. As soon as we have that announcement the campaign group will meet to discuss all the options available. Thanks for your patience!

We are very pleased to announce that our application to be patron of the new second-level school has been submitted. All applications will be reviewed and a decision will be announced in September 2016.
We go a total of 4500 Expressions of Interest which is fantastic. Thanks to everyone who filled one out and told their family and friends about it. Thanks also to all the volunteers who worked at stands and gave their time and expertise to the campaign.
We will keep you updated on any developments.
Have a great summer!

Great to see so many people at the Terenure market today. We collected lots of Expressions of Interest from parents looking for a Second level Educate Together school for Dublin South. If you didn’t get a chance to fill out an Expression of Interest form yet you can fill one out online now. Only two and a half weeks left to go until the deadline of Wednesday 8 June.
