WWETB is participating in the patronage competition for a new post-primary school in the Gorey area which will open in 2021.  Parents who have a child or children between 2nd and 6th class and who live in the school planning area for Gorey are eligible to vote.

Having the same patron involved in all 3 post-primary schools in Gorey will ensure cooperation between the schools and allow all the schools to flourish as both Creagh College and Gorey Community School have done with your support.

Even if you are not eligible to take part in the survey, it is important to bring the voting process to the attention of as many parents as possible and you can assist by sharing this information also. The parent voice and parent vote will shape the future of education provision in Gorey.

Why Choose WWETB?
