Educate Together is delighted to welcome the opening of two new primary schools. Eager young students will be starting their first day at school today (Monday 30th August) at Educate Together Portlaoise and on Wednesday 1st September at Holywell, Swords, County Dublin.

Educate Together’s CEO Paul Rowe said, ‘Today is a proud and exciting day for the communities of Portlaoise and Holywell. The new Educate Together Schools have been established in response to strong demand from local parents over a number of years. I would like to thank them all for the huge amount of hard work and dedication they each put into this project and congratulate them on their plan finally coming to fruition.’

Naomi Keye, whose son Joshua will be starting Junior Infants on Monday said ‘”Since moving to Portlaoise 3 years ago I have been campaigning for an Educate Together school to open here and I’m really looking forward to bringing my son Joshua in for his first day at school on Monday.”

The new school in Portlaoise is the 58th Educate Together primary school to open and the first in the area. Educate Together schools are multi-denominational and place a strong emphasis on learning through equality of esteem.
