Parents and teachers at Balinteer Educate Together this morning

In August 2012, Ballinteer Educate Together National School enrolled its first pupils in temporary accommodation at St. Tiernan’s Community School, Parkvale, Balally, Dundrum, Dublin 16.

Staff and pupils waited for the design and approval process of a new school building to be completed.

And waited.

And protested.

And marched.

And petitioned.

Until…

This morning, Ballinteer Educate Together National School got a little letter from An Bord Pleanála saying they were granting planning permission for our long, long fought for school.

We are in a realm beyond happiness, I can’t even begin to articulate what we’re feeling.

I wanted to thank you for the attention and posts you’ve given us over the years, they were hugely helpful, and helped fight one of the good fights that got one! Thanks to all in Broadsheet Towers!

Yay.
