Permanent site for the school
We delighted to announce that the permanent location for Malahide Portmarnock Educate Together Secondary School has been declared by the Department of Education and skills.
Planning permission is currently being sought for a site in Drinan. This is very close to the current temporary accommodation for the school.
At the moment, we are located in temporary accommodation in the Riasc Centre, Feltrim Road, Kinsealy County Dublin. The school opening, initially due in 2017, was postponed due to the difficulties in sourcing adequate accommodation. More information regarding the Riasc Centre can be found at www.theriasccentre.com.
Says Aoife Kelly-Gibson, Principal of Malahide Portmarnock ETSS:
“I am delighted to be in a position to announce the permanent location for Malahide Portmarnock ETSS. It’s been a long road to this point but now that we have a base we can continue to establish what I believe will be a fantastic school and a great asset to the community it serves. I look forward to continuing to welcome our new teachers, our parents and most of all, our brand new students who will be joining us on this exciting journey.”
Says Gerry McKevitt, school manager of Malahide Portmarnock ETSS:
“I would like to commend Aoife and the school community of Malahide Portmarnock ETSS for their patience and resilience during the last year while we sought accommodation for the school. We are grateful to the management and staff at the Riasc Centre for their co-operation.
Malahide Portmarnock ETSS will open to First Years starting secondary school in 2018.
NB: Interested parents and students are requested to only contact the firstname.lastname@example.org regarding the school as The Riasc Centre is not in a position to answer questions about the school or conduct visits.
