Dear Parents / Guardians,
As you may know, the Taoiseach Leo Varadkar and Minister for Education Joe McHugh visited Tyrrelstown Educate Together NS, St Luke’s NS and the Community Centre earlier this morning.
Following a brief observation of the external buildings the Taoiseach and Minister met with both Principals and the Manager of the Community Centre, among others, to discuss the impact the recent closure has had on the local community.
Having raised a variety of concerns that directly impact the children, parents and community in general, we have received assurances and a commitment from the Taoiseach and the Department of Education in finding a suitable solution that would allow children to return to education as soon as reasonably possible. We have also been informed that the Department of Education are assessing a range of viable options for both schools and will inform of us of these in the coming days.
We are committed to keeping our school community informed of any developments as they occur and will update you as soon as we have any tangible information from the Department of Education.
