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.
