Accommodation 2019/20

As a new school, we are delighted to have been welcomed by Firhouse Educate Together National School since we opened in August 2018. Collette and her team have been so welcoming and generous in agreeing to share their beautiful building with us. This academic year, we have also been welcomed by Gaelscoil na Giúise and are now using some of their bright and inviting classrooms. We thank Cuán and the Board of Management for agreeing to help us by providing this much needed space as our school has grown.

Permanent Site

We have exciting news about our permanent site! In May 2020, the Department announced the acquisition of a 4.45 acre site for our school on the Old Court Road. The design school building project has been referred for delivery under the Department’s Design and Build Programme and architectural planning has commenced with a view to being ready for September 2022.

Accommodation 2020/21 | Statement from the Board of Management of Firhouse ETSS | June 2020

At a special meeting of the Board of Management on 9th June 2020, arising from a communication from the Department of Education and Skills in relation to accommodation for the school for this coming September, the BOM decided to reject the proposal from the Department to relocate to Citywest. The BOM, with the support and direction of Educate Together National Office, had been working on progressing temporary accommodation on a site on Stocking Avenue for the coming academic year. With the acquisition of the permanent site, the Department has decided not to progress the temporary site on Stocking Avenue. The BOM and the school community are deeply concerned about its accommodation needs for September. Citywest is not a viable option with it being so far outside of the catchment area. This would be utterly devastating for the vibrant, creative and caring school community in Firhouse ETSS. Please read the infographic below that gives further detail of the challenges that our school has faced to date with our accommodation.

The BOM wishes to thank the students, their families and the staff team, for their commitment and support as we work together with the Department of Education and Skills to come to a workable accommodation solution for our school.

Accommodation 2020/21 | Statement from the Board of Management of Firhouse ETSS | 31st July 2020

We are delighted to share the news that we are remaining on the Firhouse Educate Together National School / Gaelscoil na Giúise shared campus for the coming academic year and will not be relocating to Citywest. The Department of Education and Skills, in consultation with an Foras Pátrúnachta, has arrived at this most welcome workable solution for our accommodation for which we are very grateful.

We are extremely thankful to Gaelscoil na Giúise for their generosity in agreeing to allow us to remain in their building. We thank Firhouse ETNS for their steadfast support of our school.

A special thank you to all of our parents/guardians, students, team and Board of Management for their unwavering patience and support. Our community will continue to grow and thrive ❤️

We look forward to planning being progressed on our permanent site on the Old Court Road as soon as possible so that our school community has a permanent home.
