Creative Schools 2019 – 2020

September 16, 2019

The list of 150 Creative Schools for 2019-2020 was announced last week and I am delighted to see that GRETB has 3 among the 11 schools and centres in County Galway in the West region – Coláiste Bhaile Chláir, Youthreach Galway City and Youthreach Letterfrack. Congratulations to Alan, Emma, Shane, Yvonne and anyone else involved in the applications.

They join Youthreach Portumna who was in the first 150 schools and centres selected last year. YR Portumna will be involved for a second year also.

There are now a total of 22 schools in Galway city and county – 17 in the County and 5 in the City and GRETB has 4 – please see below.
