Minister Harris Launches New Wicklow School Place Survey

A new online survey has been launched by the Minister for higher education Simon Harris on the provision of school places in Wicklow.

People are being urged to express their views, as work continues on new buildings and planned extensions, to address the shortage of places available for students in the garden county.

A recent review found up to 190 children will be without a second level place across the four schools in the Greystones and Kilcoole area for the new academic year.

Minister Harris has asked the Minister for Education to meet with the five TD’s in Wicklow , to address the shortfall.
