Equality-based education provider Educate Together held its first public meeting in Westport last Thursday night in the Castlecourt Hotel. Featuring talks by Educate Together regional development officer, Jennifer Buttner, and Castlebar ETNS principal Sarah Calvey, according to the organisers the meeting attracted a large turnout and has raised hopes that Educate Together’s Westport campaign will succeed in opening a primary school in 2018.
Four years after a survey found the need for one, and after a number of false starts over the past 12 months, Castlebar finally saw the opening of an Educate Together school in the town. The school which opened its doors on Wednesday morning with 12 junior infants registered on the roll book is the second Educate Together school in the county.
Castlebar's Educate Together school has seen a rise in queries and interest from parents looking to send their children to the school in recent weeks, since the most recent controversy over the location of the new school erupted. Speaking to the Mayo Advertiser yesterday (Thursday), Jarlath Munnelly, the regional development officer for Educate Together, told us: "We have a location and there is refurbishment work going on and we're happy for Wednesday August 31, that it will be ready to go, we are still getting queries from parents and had some recent enrolments this week and we are looking solidly like 10 or 11 children starting in the school next week."

The new Educate Together School in Castlebar, which is due to open on Tuesday September 1, will hopefully still open despite not having a home sorted out just 12 days before it's due to open, according to the group's regional development officer. The new Educate Together school for the town was announced in February of this year and would be the county's second such school after the opening of one in Ballina last year. The school had been given the old Burren National School outside the town as a home, but the building was deemed not up to the required standard by the Educate Together.
