A brand new state of the art education campus is currently being planned for Co.Wexford….
A memorandum of understanding was signed by both the Waterford Wexford Education Training Board and the Educate Together.
A site of over 16 acres has been purchased. Its location is on the outskirts of Wexford town between Whitford and Clonard. It’s expected that the plans will allow for 1,000 pupils to attend the education facility.
It is expected 1,000 students from Selksar College will be able to attend as well as 8 classrooms for Educate Together students.
I am delighted that the site for our new second level school for Wexford town has been announced by the Minister for Education and Skills, Norma Foley T.D. I hope that the plans for our new school will get planning approval in a timely manner, and that we can proceed with this building project and provide this much needed education facility for the people of Wexford as soon as possible,” said Barbara-Anne Murphy, Chairperson of WWETB Board.
Dr Emer Nowlan, CEO of Educate Together echoed similar sentiments and has welcomed the announcement:
“Wexford Educate Together National School has gone from strength to strength since its establishment in 2008. This new school building will provide the school with a permanent home and enable it to thrive. We look forward to working with WWETB to develop two outstanding schools on this shared campus, which can grow to meet the increasing demand for equality-based education in Wexford town,” she stated.
This is a massive boost for Wexford town, and of course, for students who will have a fantastic new school and education to take pride in, and to further enjoy their studies.
