Minister Simon Harris TD has this morning announced that the Education and Training Board will be the patron of the new secondary school to be established in Greystones.
Speaking as he confirmed the news, Minister Harris said, “I am delighted to announce that the Education and Training Board has been selected to be patron of the new Secondary School in Greystones. I would like to thank all the families who participated in the patronage selection process. Over 800 families participated and more than 50% of these indicated the Education and Training Board as their first preference”.
“Greystones has seen a surge in school enrolments not only due to more families living in our community but also more parents choosing to enrol their children in local schools. This announcement will provide peace of mind for many families who have struggled to find a second level place for their child. The new school will have a capacity of 800 and will open in Autumn 2020.”
“This is another significant investment in Greystones with the announcement last week that St David’s has been given the green light to proceed with their new buildings.”
