New schools set for openings this week

Posted by SchoolDays Newshound on 27/08/2013. New schools set for openings this weekTags: Primary School News

This week will see 11 new schools opening in Ireland, with the latest baby boom meaning more spaces are required for children in the country.

Infant classes will be taken for the first time in seven primary schools over the next few days, with five located in Dublin, one in Cork and one in Kildare. A further four second-level schools will be opening their doors, with two situated in Galway and one each in Meath and Dublin, the Irish Examiner reports.

While the premises for many of the schools are currently temporary, new purpose-built schools are set to be constructed for them in the future.

Alan Sheehan, Principal at the Rochestown Educate Together National School in the southside suburb of Cork, explained those in the infant class of the school were excited to see where their new classroom will be during a play day organised at the weekend.  

He stated: "We look forward to meeting them all for their first day of school on Thursday and having a cup of tea or coffee with the parents."
