 The Department of Education and Skills have announced that it will open a new Second-level school in the Dublin South City area in September 2018.   This is a hugely significant development for the many parents looking for more choice in the type of Second-level schools available in the Dublin South City area.  The location of the school, which will be a new building, will be in the Dublin South City area (Dublin 2, 4, 6 or 8).

Educate Together has confirmed that it will apply to be the Patron of this new Second-level school. The Department of Education will invite Patron Bodies to apply to be Patron of this new school over the next few months.  The awarding of the Patron of the new Second-level school will be decided by the number of Expressions of Interest completed by parents.

 We need you to complete an Expression of Interest online as soon as possible and ask friends and family who are interested in an Educate Together Second-level school to do so as well! Please complete the Expression of Interest form online at:


We are having a coffee morning in Seomra Spraoi on Friday 12th February to support the campaign and answer any questions that you may have. Please make sure to drop in if you can. Everyone welcome!
