Local Minister and TD for Dublin Fingal Darragh O’Brien has met with school representatives and received an update as to the new Malahide-Portmarnock Educate Together Secondary School (MPETSS).
Minister O’Brien met with School Principal Aoife Kelly Gibson, Deputy Principal Anne Grills, School Secretary Elaine Rooney as well as Chairperson of the Board of Management David Graham and Board of Management member Amanda Downes, to discuss a number of issues in relation to the new school build, in advance of the school reopening this week.
Commenting Minister O’Brien said, “It was good to have an opportunity to meet with school representatives ahead of the new academic year. It’s great to see contractors on site preparing for the new school.
“There are a number of immediate issues which school representatives highlighted with me, from safety and signage to access and accessibility.
“There are also longer term issues which I will also be raising with my colleague Minister Foley to seek assurances on. Once complete the school will cater for approximately 1,000 students and it’s important we put in place now, the infrastructure that’s needed so that the new school reaches its full potential for all its students,” he concluded.
