4 December 2023

Libermann Spiritan School Templeogue (LSST) had its official launch day on Monday 4 December 2023 when the Tánaiste, Micheál Martin TD, officially opened the school with a tree planting ceremony in the grounds.

The school provides a safe and caring learning environment for autistic students with complex learning needs who require the support of a special school from the age of four years through to 18 years of age.

Vivienne Wynne, Principal of LSST said: “I’m very excited that we have arrived at this point. A lot of work has gone into getting us to where we are today, from the planning which started nearly four years ago to opening our doors to the first 30 students just three months ago. Our school community is committed to nurturing a warm and welcoming environment for our students and staff, and to encourage them to develop a strong sense of attachment and belonging in our school.”

Chairperson of the Board of Management, Paul Foley added: “It is our intention to offer an exceptional experience of education and support for all our students. I am delighted we have made it to this point, and I look forward to the next phase of our development over the next few years when we will be able to facilitate 156 students.”

The launch will be attended by parents, families and people from the local Templeogue communities in addition to other key stakeholders from within the school network, with a keynote address from Tánaiste, Minister for Foreign Affairs and Minister for Defence Micheál Martin after which there will be a tree planting in the school grounds.

Tánaiste, Minister for Foreign Affairs and Minister for Defence, Micheál Martin TD, said: “Education has been a life-long passion of mine and it is my core belief that there should be equality of access and opportunity for all children. I am delighted that LSST has begun the journey of providing much-needed support for children in the Templeogue area and it is heartening to know that there is an ambitious plan to provide places for an additional 120 children in the coming years.”
