Newtownmountkennedy Kilcoole Educate Together Campaign 2019



UPDATE: VOTING HAS NOW CLOSED. Please sign up to our email list for updates on who will be the patron of this school & where it will be located.


In light of the strong support from across the Kilcoole & Newtownmountkennedy community, Educate Together applied for patronage of the new primary school to open in 2019 in that area.


On November 8th the Department of Education (DES) invited patrons to apply to run the new school in Kilcoole & Newtownmountkennedy and published a catchment area map (below). Following this the DES opened an online voting system for parents in this area to choose a patron of this new school between 10th December 2018-15th January 2019. 


To receive updates on when the Department publish the results of this patronage process, where they are choosing as the location for the primary school in Kilcoole & Newtownmountkennedy sign up to the email list here or below.

Enrolment for Junior Infants 2019 will be managed by the patron successful in the patronage process and thus is not yet open. Enrolment for junior infant classes starting after 2019 will be managed directly through the school after it opens in September 2019.
