There was much excitement on Tuesday 27 August as Drogheda Educate Together Secondary School opened to its first cohort of First Year students. The school opened in its temporary accommodation in Laytown/Bettystown Youthreach while permanent accommodation is sought by the Department of Education and Skills.
Educate Together was granted patronage of the school after a process to ascertain parental preference in 2018 so the day was especially meaningful to all the parents and supporters that campaigned so effectively.
Said Susan Campbell, Principal of Drogheda ETSS:
“I am delighted and very excited that we have finally reached the day where we will welcome all of our students through the doors of the newest school in South Drogheda/East Meath. As a native of this area it gives me great pride to have been given the opportunity to lead this school. Together with a team of seven teachers we have committed to providing the second level students of this area with a vibrant and innovative learning community which will be framed within a culture of positivity and mutual respect.”
