The Department of Education is committed to building an additional secondary school in the Dublin 15 area in the period 2017-21. The details of the location and patron of the school are not yet agreed as of yet, I want to highlight to parents a number of developments regarding this additional school.

An information meeting was held recently in Diswellstown in relation establishing the patronage of the new secondary school. There are currently a variety of patrons in Dublin 15 at secondary level for example, religious patronage in Le Cheile secondary school, Educate Together in Hansfield second level school and the Education and Training Board in Pobail Scoil Setanta.

The Department of Education is now inviting submissions from parents regarding the patron for the new school. The deadline for submissions is June 8th.

For more information please see Dublin West Patronage Information – Dept of Education & Skills

The Education and Training Board are holding their meeting regarding the patronage of the new secondary school in Luttrellstown Community College on Wednesday 1st June at 7.30pm. All are welcome to attend.
