St Joseph’s recently completed allocating places for 120 new first years who are due to start in August 2019. Unfortunately, due to a demand for places, we are left with 104 pupils on our waiting list. The Board of Management recognises the seriousness of this issue for those who have not received an offer of a place in St Joseph’s for August 2019.
The Board is currently interacting with the Department of Education and Skills and intends to accommodate as many students as possible subject to funding by the Department. Our objective is to install temporary accommodation to facilitate additional school places being provided to satisfy the needs of the community. An application has been lodged with the Department and they have confirmed that they are treating the matter with the utmost urgency.
The Board of Management in conjunction with stakeholders would like to work on a focused action plan to ensure that the facilities are available for students who want to come to St Joseph’s. If you would like to be part of this campaign, please click on the link below:
