Due to questions over the new Admissions Act and in the expectation of instruction related to that coming from our Patron, we had not opened the pre-enrolment list for 2023 in early summer, as we would usually have done. However, as no progress has been made in relation to this, we have proceeded to open the pre-enrolment list for that year. It now seems likely that we will be required to implement a new enrolment policy from 2024. We await further instruction in relation to this from both the Department of Education and Educate Together Central Office. It can now be expected that our current Enrolment Policy will be used to allocate places up to 2023.
The Board of Management of Citywest ETNS thanks Paul Flanagan and Norma Healy for their years of service to our school. Their resignation from our Board leaves two Community Nominee vacancies which we need to fill.
Our Board of Management is a vibrant, engaged group of dedicated people who strive to lead our school to be the best it can be and to ensure that the Educate Together ethos is upheld at all times.
The roles of Community Nominees are important in the aim of ensuring transparency, fairness and quality assurance in the leadership of our school. It is important that, when our Board of Management considers an issue, a diverse range of perspectives are offered and considered.
Prospective candidates should not be parents of children in our school as our parent body are already well represented. Neither should prospective candidates be employees of the school.
We ask parents, guardians and friends of our school to consider who in their circle of acquaintances might be a good fit for one of these roles and direct any potentially suitable candidates towards us.
All interested parties should contact the school office.
Following the start of the new school year, progress has been made on the waiting lists for places in our school. We are now maintaining 4 waiting lists only:
We continue to monitor enrolment and to offer places as they arise.
