Your Voice Matters—Your Vote Matters

Choose a CEIST education

CEIST are delighted to apply for the patronage of the new secondary schools in Dunshaughlin and Gorey to open in 2021. We are excited at this opportunity to provide state of the art, Co-educational Catholic Post-Primary schools (with an Ionad Gaelach) and so ensure the highest quality provision for the boys and girls of both communities now and for generations to come.

The  Online Patronage Process System will be open for parents to express their preferences until Monday 16th November at 9am.

To be eligible to vote your child must be starting their first year in post-primary school from 2021-2025 and live within the boundaries of the school planning area.  In other words parents of pupils from 2nd to 6th class are entitled to vote.

You will need your child’s PPS number and Eircode to vote
