  • Affordable school for my kids

    I am in the process of relocating to Ireland with my family, my wife and two children aged 2 and 4 years old. I am seeking information on affordable school options in Dublin for my children.

    Your recommendations in this regard would be greatly appreciated.

    All the schools are fairly good , some better than others. They are also free unless you go private. Our children went private and in hindsight there was was no advantage. Some schools have waiting lists so you would want to be getting your application in ASAP for September. What area are you hoping to move to ?

                        If a teacher didn’t turn up his class was split between the two classes beside his and then there was over 80 in the class

                          Just before I left, because of My birthday I had a few months left after being in the highest class. So a couple of us sat a the back of the class we had been through...We just sat and read what we liked...there was a big gap of empty desks between us and them...There had been a lot of streets demolished around my area them times...

                            my 6th class last day memory was thinking you would get out early ,but no the day was spent been taught how to address an envelope,where to write the name the address stamp at the right hand corner, must have been an essential before you left primary.

                              And use your Aunt’s address if she lived in a posh neighbourhood when you applied for a job.
