Open Night 2018/19
Thursday 26th October, 2017.

6.30pm- 8.30pm

VERY IMPORTANT NOTICE FOR PARENTS/ GUARDIANS OF CURRENT 6th CLASS STUDENTS

APPLICATIONS NEED TO BE IN EARLIER THIS YEAR DUE TO DEMAND

New Application Forms for incoming 1st Years 2018/19 will be available in our secretary’s office from next Monday 2nd October, 2017. Old version Forms already given to us completed in the last few weeks will continue to be valid. However, no more will be given out to parents/ guardians until the new one is ready for this year’s enrollment process on Monday.

As our Admission’s Policy states Open Night is the beginning every year of our enrollment process. You then have only a few days after Open Night to get the necessary documentation and completed application form before the closing date.

Therefore, to ensure you have your house in order and don’t fail to get your form in on time we strongly recommend that you collect an application form from next Monday at our school, and have it completed well before Open Night. As over 100 parents have applications in already it will allow us also to speed up the process of knowing who to offer places to once we have all applications in.

As stated in an earlier email last week please read our Admissions Policy as there will not be enough places to meet demand unfortunately.

We have only 120 1st Year Places and although there is always demand for places this year onward should see a significant increase not only because students and parents are happy in the school as exemplified in recent WSE inspector’s surveys but also and probably more importantly because of recent Census CSO figures which show a massive increase in the population of young people in Doughiska and Roscam from 2017 onwards!

Therefore, it really is important to get your application in asap!

Best of luck and see you at Open Night,

Regards,
John Cleary.
