Educate Together Tallaght-Citywest - Update

Educate Together Tallaght-Citywest - Update           reply
19/02/2009 11:16 - School Specific (Locality: Dublin West)
An Educate Together national school will most likely not be opening in Tallaght-Citywest this year (2009). The Department of Education and Science have informed us that they do not intend to recognize a new school in Tallaght in 2009.

We encourage any interested parents to continue to make representations to their local political representatives to change this decision. Furthermore, the Department of Education and Science intends to recognise new schools in the general Tallaght area in 2010 and 2011.

The patronage of any proposed new schools has not been decided and any interested parents should also advocate Educate Together as the patron of a new school in the area to ensure that parents have the right to decide on the type of education their children receive.

We are still actively working towards opening an Educate Together School in 2010 and are completely committed to this. I will continue to post updates on our progress.

Any children who have been pre-enrolled for 2010 (and onwards) will retain their positions on the pre-enrolment list. Any children who are placed on the pre-enrolment list for 2009 will retain their position on the list for a place in senior infants in 2010.
