As you all know there was a huge problem with secondary school places lately in our town. With the petition, the students protest and all the media attention St. Joseph's Secondary School is able to accept all students who were on the waiting list. But the work is far from done. There are 1000 new houses are being built in Rush, according to recent surveys using the current numbers of primary school students in the feeder schools the boom will be in 2022. St Joseph's Secondary School needs a new building!
A March is planned for the 27th of November, next Tuesday at 9:30 when the students from St. Joseph's Secondary School will march up from the school to the planned place of the new school on Palmer Road, by the GAA. They ask the parents of the current primary school students and all other sympathisers to join with their children if they can. This is something we have to resolve together as a community.
