As you may know the Department of Education and Skills (DES) sanctioned a new Educate Together school in Carpenterstown which was due to open in September 2013. Following representations made last year to the DES the school opening was deferred for one year. In late September Educate Together was notified that the school opening was to proceed with a start date of September 2014.
Since September Educate Together has been in contact regularly with the DES and have requested a meeting to discuss their plans for accommodation for the school. We haven’t managed to arrange a meeting as yet but are confident that the meeting will take place in the very near future. If the accommodation proposed by the DES is acceptable we will proceed with the school opening and hope to begin principal teacher recruitment in late January 2014.
We would like to thank you for your patience and for your continued support for Carpenterstown Educate Together National School, and we will organise an information meeting of interested parties as the situation develops.
Please continue to check back regularly for updates.
