We will do everything we can to fix Greystones Community College situation: Wicklow Minister

Minister for Health Stephen Donnelly has said he is working with the Department of Education to help find alternative accommodation for students of Greystones Community College.

There has been widespread anger amongst parents and students after it emerged this week that Greystones Community College will not open in September as planned.

First year students were due to start in the new school alongside the primary level students from Greystones Community National School next month.

“I know there is a lot of worry about the emerging issues with Greystones Community National School and Greystones Community College,” Minister Donnelly said.

“The new school building is, as I understand it, now not going to open in time for the new school year due to
delays.

“I am liaising with both the school management and the Department of Education to find a speedy resolution to this problem.

“The priority now is to find alternative accommodation for the 70 students from GCC who are due to start in First Year next month.

“I know this must be an extremely stressful time for the parents and students affected but rest assured we will do everything we can to resolve this issue as quickly as possible so both schools can get back on track”.
