In April 2018, the Government announced plans for the establishment of 42 new schools over the four years from 2019 to 2022, including a new 800 pupil post-primary school to be established in 2020 to serve the Goatstown_Stillorgan_DLR school planning area as a regional solution .
The successful patrons of the six new post-primary schools to be established in 2020, including the new school referred to by the Deputy, were announced yesterday and the assessment reports and the NSEG recommendations are available on my Department's website (www.education.ie).
