Stephen Donnelly, Fianna Fáil TD for Wicklow and East Carlow has welcomed confirmation that a permanent site for Greystones Community National School has been secured.

The School is currently located on the grounds of Greystones Rugby Club with plans under way to move to a permanent location.

Deputy Donnelly commented, “I am delighted to be able to inform residents that the Department of Education have confirmed that the site for Greystones Community National School has been secured. This will be incredibly welcome news for students, parents, and teachers who have worked so hard to secure a permanent home for the new school.

“I have been working closely with the Department of Education, parents and staff since the school opened its doors to find a permanent home for it. It looks like this has now become a reality.

“Staff at the school have done a sterling job of educating pupils in the current facilities, however, a purpose-built facility that allows it to meet the growing demand in the Charlesland area has been badly needed for some time now.

“The next priority is to ensure that building begins as quickly as possible. I will continue to work closely with the Department, parents, and teachers in order to ensure that the new facility is completed at the earliest opportunity.”
