COSTELLO WELCOMES THE FIRST SECOND-LEVEL EDUCATE TOGETHER SCHOOL FOR DUBLIN’S NORTHSIDE

12 January 2016

by Cllr Joe Costello

Deputy Costello said: “I have campaigned for a second-level Educate Together school on Dublin’s northside for many years. “A number of primary Educate Together schools have been established in recent years, and a new primary Educate Together school is being built in the DIT Campus, Grangegorman.

“However, there is not a single second-level Educate Together school north of the Liffey. This creates an educational anomaly. “There has been strong support among parents for such a school, and I am delighted the new Clonturk Community College, as it will be called, will open on the Swords Road, Whitehall, Dublin 9, in September 2016.

“The school will be co-located with Plunket College and is expected to have an initial enrolment of 75 students. It will offer greater diversity in educational ethos and increase the choice available for parents.”
