Education and Training Boards Ireland (ETBI) welcomes the announcement by the Minister for Education and Skills, Richard Bruton, T.D., that Louth and Meath Education and Training Board (LMETB) has been awarded patronage of a primary school in Faughart, Co. Louth. The school will reopen as a Community National School in September 2018.
Nessa White, General Secretary of ETBI said “I would like to commend LMETB, the Archbishop of Armagh and the Department of Education and Skills for their collaborative work on ensuring that the community of Faughart will be served by their local school in September.
The inclusive ethos of Community National Schools along with the educational and governance supports provided to them by ETBs is making them an attractive model for school communities across the country.
I would like to wish the children, parents, the wider school community and LMETB all the very best in the opening of Faughart CNS”.
