Minister Bruton announces patronage of 9 new Post-Primary schools to be established in 2017/2018

The Edmund Rice Schools Trust (ERST) warmly welcomes the decision announced last week by the Minister for Education and Skills, that the new post-primary school in Carpenterstown and Castleknock in Dublin will be under the patronage of the Edmund Rice Schools Trust.  The new school will be a co-educational, non-fee paying school and will bring the number of schools within the ERST network to 96 across the country.  ERST schools combine primary and post-primary, boys, girls and co-educational as well as lán gaeilge schools.  In total, over 35,000 children are being educated in Edmund Rice Schools.

Parental preference was a key determinant in deciding the patronage of the new schools.  Gerry Bennett, Chief Executive of ERST, said the Trust was grateful for the confidence placed in Edmund Rice Schools by the parents and families in Carpenterstown and Castleknock.  “The Edmund Rice Schools Trust is committed to ensuring that Irish education remains accessible and inclusive,” Gerry Bennett said.  “We welcome that this new co-educational, non-fee paying secondary school will be joining our strong and diverse network of schools around the country.”  “Voluntary secondary schools have played a foundational part in Irish education and will continue to do so as part of an education landscape that reflects our modern societal diversity and desire for choice.”
