Coláíste Abhainn Rí
As agreed by the Trustees, ERST and CEIST, and formally approved by the Department of Education and Skills on 22 June 2020, the new amalgamated school, Coláiste Abhainn Rí, will be in effect from 1st September 2022.
The amalgamated school will be operating from St. Brigid’s College, Callan, Co. Kilkenny. The Patrons and the Department of Education and Skills are working together to ensure the best use of both school properties for the newly amalgamated school.
In Transition Year, both schools have worked together this year to introduce a new practical subject initiative in to both student cohorts. TY’s from both schools are now getting the chance to study Home Economics, Construction Studies and Engineering together.
