Dear Parent,

We’re writing today with our last update to you all. The ETHX campaign was formed to address the lack of second-level, multi-denominational, co-educational schools in Dublin 6, 6W, 8 and 12. We feel that the situation has changed sufficiently that it’s time to dissolve the campaign. So read on for updates, links to further information and our wrap-up message!

Harold’s Cross Educate Together Secondary School – Educate Together were awarded the patronage of the secondary school planned for the Harold’s Cross Greyhound Track site after the parental preference process. The school will open in September 2020. Please see full information here

St. Kevin’s College to become a CDETB/Educate Together second-level school. Please see further information from the Advisory Group on the change management process here. We have been advised that the Advisory Group intends to issue another update in Term 3. Please also see further information from the school’s new principal, Lesley Byrne, here , including an invitation to their planned Open Evening in May.

The campaign truly was a group effort, and the committee is very grateful to everyone who gave their time, came to meetings, came to the protest, spoke or wrote to their political representatives, shared information with their friends and peers, or helped in any other way – thank you! 

The mailing list will be deleted after this message is sent. 

As one last action, can we suggest that you inform yourself about these two new schools and help spread the word in your community that we have better options now!

On behalf of the committee, we wish to send all the best to you and your families.

Róisín Kelly
Chairperson
