“It’s been a long road to the opening of Galway ETSS and since Educate Together was awarded patronage of the school last October we were aware that it was vital that we find the right person to lead the school in its formative years. Luckily for us, Sarah is a perfect fit for the school and on behalf of the Galway ETSS school community and the Educate Together national office I would like to warmly welcome her back to the Educate Together team,” she said.
