Application to open new school will proceed.

Educate Together has confirmed that they will be applying to open a new national school for 2008. They now exceed the required number of children pre-enrolled in order to be considered by the New Schools Advisory Committee.
Parents were out in force at Educate Together’s pre-enrolment evening in Graiguecullen GAA Football Club on Wednesday 16th January. Parents had the opportunity to pre-enrol their children on the night and gain further information on the proposed national school for Carlow, due to open in September 2008. Mary White, Green Party T.D. attended and expressed her party’s continued support for the establishment of the school in Carlow. Also present was Amy Mulvihill, New Schools Officer for Educate Together, who was on hand to answer any questions that parents had relating to the ethos and principles underlying Educate Together national schools.
Parents are reminded that Educate Together’s proposed national school is still accepting pre-enrolment forms for their children, although places for junior infants are filling up rapidly. As places are allocated on a first come, first served basis, it is, therefore, advisable for parents to pre-enrol their children as soon as places are offered. To facilitate parents further, Educate Together invites parents to log into their website at where they can download the necessary pre-enrolment forms.

Carlow Educate Together wishes to thank Graiguecullen GAA Football Club for the use of their club and facilities on the night. Educate Together will hold its next meeting in the Library Room in Dinn RĂ­ on Wednesday 23rd January 2008. Anyone looking for information or wishing to volunteer is most welcome to come along.
