New Educate Together primary school to open in Dublin this September

The Programme for Government has committed to reaching 400 non-denominational and multi denominational schools by 2030.

A NEW PRIMARY school under the Educate Together patronage will open in Dublin this September.

The new school will open in the former St. Peters Boys’ National School, Limekiln Road, Greenhills, Dublin.

It’s part of the process of primary school divestment and follows surveys of parents on patronage choice in some 43 towns.

The aim of the surveys was to establish the level of parental demand for a wider choice in the patronage of primary schools within these areas of stable population.

The Minister for Education and Skills Richard Bruton said, “I am delighted to announce the opening, from September 2016, of a new primary school under the patronage of Educate Together in Greenhills, Dublin.”

We are determined to provide more choice for parents and to make it easier for parents to enrol their children in multi denominational schools, where they wish to do so.

The Programme for Government has committed to reaching 400 non-denominational and multi denominational schools by 2030 which would mean more than a trebling of the current rate of transfer of Catholic schools to multi denominational patrons.
