Educate Together on course for further growth

Play

GERRY MCKEVITT of Educate Together tells Pat Meehan about the organisation’s growth over the past four decade. Educate Together was established as a multi-denominational school in the late 1970s. There are now 74 Educate Together schools in Ireland, and two second level schools as well as a new primary school in Bristol in the UK. The multi-denominational, democratic ethos of the schools has ensured their popularity across the country and whenever a new one opens, waiting lists of prospective students soon outgrow their capacity.
