Bray People - - Report Council -

GREY­STONES Sec­ond-Level Action Group is step­ping up its cam­paign for an Ed­u­cate To­gether sec­ond level school in the town, hav­ing sent a dep­u­ta­tion re­cently to Grey­stones Town Coun­cil.

They want a new sec­ond-level school which is multi-de­nom­i­na­tional, co-ed­u­ca­tional, learner cen­tred and man­aged with ac­tive par­tic­i­pa­tion of par­ents in the run­ning of the school, said a rep­re­sen­ta­tive.

The dep­u­ta­tion re­ceived a pos­i­tive re­cep­tion from the town coun­cil­lors. Ac­cord­ing to Coun­cil­lor Derek Mitchell, ‘Fifty per cent of secondary school pupils leave Grey­stones to at­tend sec­ond level schools.

A ma­jor ob­jec­tive for Grey­stones town is to pro­vide a school with an ethos which is at­trac­tive to the res­i­dents of Grey­stones and the Ed­u­cate To­gether ethos should, there­fore, ful­fil this.’
