Opening of Bray school has been postponed

There has been more disappointment for staff and students in Bray today as plans to open Coláiste Ráithín this morning have been postponed.

The secondary school was set to open its doors today but has not yet received certification to confirm the new building’s compliance with safety standards and regulations.

Parents were informed yesterday afternoon that the school’s opening had been postponed due to the failure to produce the safety certification.

Traolach Ó Maolchataigh, principal of Coláiste Ráithín, has said that the school hopes to be open to students by next Monday.

This is the latest setback to hit the secondary school following the collapse of Carillion, the UK construction company contracted to build the new school.

Coláiste Ráithín is one of several schools in Ireland who have been left in a state of uncertainty since the construction company’s collapse.
