Ardee Educate Together is a multi-denominational, multi-cultural, primary school for both girls & boys. They will soon to be the proud owners of a brand new purpose built state of the art primary school building.
Initially the school will have eight classrooms with four learning support classrooms, a large PE hall and a special needs unit with a multi-sensory room will be added as the need arises.
The plan has been approved by the Department of Education which will be built on a four-acre site on the grounds of St Joseph’s Hospital Ardee and will be completed by September 2014.
