The Department of Education and skills have rolled out the new Online Patronage Process System (OPPS). This process allows parents to vote for their preferred patron for the four new Post-Primary Schools to be opened in September 2019.

  • The areas identified by the Department are:
  • Donaghmede - Howth - D13 (Belmayne/Clongriffin area)
  • Galway City & Oranmore (Regional Solution)
  • Laytown & Drogheda (Regional Solution)
  • Wicklow

Parents and Guardians with children who will be attending post-primary school between 2019 to 2023 born between 2006 and 2011 and live in the specified areas identified by the Department of Education is eligible to vote.

 Scoil Sinéad believes that all children should learn at their own pace and their own learning style and not conform to any one method. Being involved in the community and developing our community is a big part of our curriculum aiming to show how important every job is to the development of the community and show the children all the options they have in their lives. We aim to nourish and give children the tools they need so that they can use their individual talents and abilities to make their community great.

Scoil Sinéad's ethos is that every child has a right to an education no matter their social economy, religion, ethnic background or their abilities.

Please help us to achieve this goal VOTE for Scoil Sinéad.
