Mr. Durkan Mr. Durkan
89. Mr. Durkan asked the Minister for Education if he will outline his present  proposals regarding second level education in Celbridge, County Kildare; if these proposals are sufficient to meet the long term second level requirements of the area; and if he will make a statement on the matter.
Minister for Education (Mr. S. Brennan) Seamus Brennan
Minister for Education (Mr. S. Brennan): There are two post-primary schools in Celbridge — the Salesian College with an enrolment of 573 boys and St. Wolstan's College, managed by the Holy Faith Sisters, with an enrolment of 514 girls.
My Department has recently offered to grant-aid the provisions of additional accommodation at the Salesian College, Celbridge, to cater for its anticipated enrolment next September and the school's response to the proposal is awaited.
The question of providing for the long term needs of the Celbridge area, at post-primary level, is being examined by my Department in the light of the announcement by the Holy Faith Sisters of their intention to withdraw from the Management of their school and the increasing demand for pupil places in the area.
