Notre Dame School to close

Posted by SchoolDays Newshound, on 20/10/2016. Notre Dame School to closeTags: Parenting Teachers

Notre Dame junior and secondary school located in Churchtown has announced it is to close. The junior school will close in June 2017 while the secondary school will continue until June 2019 to allow the current cohort of Junior and Leaving Cert students to complete their studies.

The private school caters for approximately 250 students . It was originally founded by the Notre Dame de Missions Sisters back in the 1950s but the religious orders has not been involved for over ten years. The school has since been run on a private fee-paying basis by The Notre Dame Schools Trust Ltd. However the Trust has taken a decision to wind-down the school over the coming three years due to ongoing financial difficulties.

It is reported that the Department of Education has acquired the Notre Dame campus and that it will be used for school purposes in the future.
