05 November, 2018 - Update on WBS Building Issues - Tyrrelstown Schools

The Department of Education and Skills had a meeting today with the schools authorities in Tyrrelstown Educate Together National School (ETNS) and St Luke’s National School, Tyrrelstown. 

The impact of the precautionary measures completed yesterday on the smooth running of the schools was discussed.   Arising from this, further work is being undertaken over the course of today and tomorrow. 

The Department is working closely with the school authorities to facilitate the reopening of both schools as soon as possible. 

Taking account of the time also necessary to address operational issues, such as traffic management, over the course of today, tomorrow and Wednesday, all parties are now working towards the schools reopening later in the week.  The detail will be communicated by the school authorities directly to parents.

Occupancy will initially be at ground floor level only, with other classes being temporarily accommodated off-site.
