Congratulations to Susan Campbell and her staff team at Clonturk Community college who maintained a calm and welcoming presence for parents yesterday.
Carol Hanney CE of CDETB said, ‘As applications for 2017 opened at 10am we were not expecting the overnight queues or media attention. We are very heartened and encouraged by the intense interest in our new school. Over the coming weeks we hope to find a way to accommodate as many applicants as possible.’
Principal Susan Campbell said today. ‘Clonturk Community College is focussing on developing a culture of positivity and mutual respect as well as an excellence in teaching and learning. We got a sense of how interested people were in our school ethos during the Open Evening last week when we welcomed hundreds of parents and their children.’
Clonturk CC will provide our students with the best education and developmental opportunities based on the experience and education philosophies of City of Dublin Education and Training Board and Educate Together. Our new and talented staff team feel privileged to be at the forefront of this exciting new development in education.
Carol Hanney continued, “City of Dublin ETB wants to work with parents and young people to grow and develop our existing schools and to create new schools which are centred on the needs of today’s students and their parents. We want our students to be happy young people who are engaged in discovery and in learning and our aim is to help them reach their potential as they mature into healthy young adults. Our ethos is inclusive and student centred and we have welcomed this opportunity to work with Educate Together to create this new school in Dublin city.”
