Rural Wicklow Schools Have Option Of Sharing Teachers And Principals Under New Project

A number of rural schools will have the option of sharing teachers and principals under a new project being launched today.

Premises in Shilelagh, Tinahealy and Redcross in Wicklow are among six clusters nationwide across Galway, Donegal, Kerry, and Waterford being formed, made up of between 3 and 5 schools.

They'll be encouraged to identify common challenges and receive funding under the two-year initiative.

Among the options are sharing teachers, organising common activities and bringing a number of schools under the management of one principal.
