As all members of our school community will be aware we have been awaiting the provision of a school extension and refurbishment for over ten years. We now need your support to move the school extension process forward. It appears that it is now delayed in the DES building unit awaiting approval to proceed to Stage 2B. So how can you help? Please print, address, sign and forward copies of the letters below through any means possible (mail, email, social media) and encourage other people to send them to as many people as possible on the contact list below and to anyone else who may be able to offer representation on our behalf. This is a really crucial time in the school extension process and everyone’s support is much needed at this time.

Thanks to all parents/guardians and prospective students who attended our Open Day on Thursday 13th October. We estimate that there were about 450 families represented on the day. Visitors to the school were offered a guided tour by our current students and received a brochure outlining the various curricular and extra-curricular programmes that are on offer in the college. Each subject area had a display of work done by students and teachers and students were on hand to answer questions from visitors. Parents and students leaving the school commented on how proud our students are of the College and of being a member of our community.
Thanks for members of our Parents’ Association who attended and offered a cup of tea to visitors as well as explaining the importance of parental involvement in our school. We hope that those who visited found out more about what we have to offer and that it will help future students to select most suitable option subjects. Thanks to all of our staff and students who made the event such a memorable occasion.

Applications must be fully completed and returned by hand to the front office by the Closing Date for applications which is 4.30pm, Friday 28th October 2016.

Application forms have been delivered to all schools listed in our enrolment policy which can be accessed here and and also available from the College Office. Parents/guardians of pupils in 5th class primary are asked to ensure that they return the completed forms to the front office and to collect the stamped receipt as proof of application by the deadline of 4.30pm Friday 23rd October. Applications received after this date will be classified as late applications and are placed at the bottom of the list for processing. The college will not hold an Open Night this year but successful applicants for 2017 will be invited to an open evening next year in order to learn more about their subject option choices.
It is now time to complete the reenrolment form for 2015/16 so that we can ensure that we hold places for returning students and offer available places to new applicants. Please print, complete and return the form to the front office before Thursday 28th May. The form is available here.
Details of the purpose of the voluntary contribution and of the MIT online payment system are available here.
Thank you to all those who applied for a place in 1st year 2016. All applicants have received a letter informing them of their category placement. The Board of Management received an unprecedented number of letters from parents who are on the waiting list in category B (first in family, and effectively attending and living in our traditional geographical area) for 2016. Parents in this category recently received a letter from the Board to invite them to a meeting. This matter is directly linked to the fact that the school has been awaiting an extension for almost 10 years. The Board calls on all local representatives to champion the prioritising of the school extension and to ensure that there is commitment and finance secured at the highest levels to the speedy delivery of the school extension and hence to the school’s ability to enrol more students.
