Minister Quinn announces patronage of 9 new Post-Primary schools to be established in 2015 and 2016
The Edmund Rice Schools Trust is pleased that it has been invited by the Minister for Education and Skills to be the Patron of the new secondary school in Carrigaline, County Cork.
Edmund Rice College (ERC), Carrigaline, will be modelled on the well known and respected Christian Brothers College (CBC), Cork. It will share CBC’s values and aspirations for all the children of Carrigaline. The school will be a co-educational, non fee-paying, inclusive Catholic school, which will welcome students of all faiths and none. Edmund Rice College (ERC) will place a strong emphasis on academic achievement, whilst catering for the full range of abilities. We look forward to working with the parents, the local community and the other schools in the Carrigaline area.
We wish to thank all those parents who placed their faith in us by signing preference forms and writing letters supporting our application. The magnificent assistance that we received from Christian Brothers College (CBC), Cork, is well known, and greatly appreciated. We wish to assure the entire Carrigaline Community that we will provide the highest standards of Edmund Rice education.
