Department of Education Criticised for Delay In Appointing Patron For New School In Greystones

Until that decision is made, there can be no progress towards hiring the Principal, establishing a Board of Management or locating accommodation.

The secondary school in the Charlesland area of the town, due to start in September 2020, will serve the Kilcoole and Greystones areas.

Parents and guardians had been asked to take part in an online survey to express their preference of patronage and whether they would prefer English or Irish as the language of the school.

Social Democrats Councillor Jennifer Whitmore has called on Minister of Education Joe McHugh to bring some urgency to this decision.
