Educate Together have announced the opening of a new school in Celbridge which will cater for 70 second level students. The ethos behind the Educate Together system of schools is to provide children from all backgrounds and areas with an equal opportunity in education. Celbridge was already home to three Educate Together national schools, and the new secondary school will be placed on the same premises as the North Kildare Educate Together national school. There are currently 77 Educate Together schools operating throughout the country, and CEO of the network, Paul Rowe, has outlined that they aim to have as many as 300 schools in operation around Ireland. Gerard O'Leary, principle of the Celbridge school, said "‘I am very excited that we have arrived at the point where Celbridge Community School can open its doors to the most important members of a school community, our students." "We look forward to building a dynamic and innovative school which will prepare the students of this community to meet the needs and challenges of the 21st century through the delivery of a holistic education."
