New Secondary School Sanctioned

Monday, October 20, 2008

The Minister for Education has also confirmed that a new secondary school to serve the Castleknock and Clonsilla areas will open in September 2009. Details are not yet available. It will be a community college operated by Dublin County VEC (just like Castleknock Community College). The school’s permanent home will be in Porterstown/Kellystown. In June, the council designated this land for a reserved school site.

One of the reasons Fine Gael supported the controversial rezoning was because there was no land locally for these badly needed schools. The Socialists, Labour and the Greens voted against so I expect to hear them furiously welcoming this news and desperately trying get back onside with the local community.
