Secondary School for Kinnegad
St Etchens N.S is the largest national school in Westmeath. We do not yet have a secondary school yet. Please sign the petition if you would like to see a secondary school here for your children
Did you know, that if there are 300 Kids leave Kinnegad each week to attend a different secondary school, based on the current €25 fee each week per child, this comes to €7500 of your money leaving the town. This figure is over €33,000 per MONTH... Not to mention the Carbon Footprint this is leaving behind, and travel time wasted by your children.
Think of the extra time your child could have to play with without having to travel out of the locality to go to school!
How many jobs could be created for our local community if a secondary school was to be built.
