Owenabue ETNS is delighted to announce that our first Autism Class has been sanctioned by the NCSE to open in September 2021.
Principal Trina Golden says:
“It was always a priority for us to get an Autism class established as soon as possible. The need for special class places far outstrips availability in Carrigaline and the wider Cork area. It is one of our core beliefs that all children should be able to attend a school in their local area, with their needs catered for. This is the first step for us in doing our part to make this possible. We are thrilled to have had a class sanctioned and we look forward to what it will bring to our growing school community”
The class will cater for Junior and Senior Infant pupils with Autism who have a recommendation for special class placement. There will be 6 spaces available and the admissions process will open on the 1st February 2021 and close on 26th February 2021. The application form will be available here on the 1st February.
