Educate Together is the patron body of RETNS and over 84 primary schools and 14 secondary schools in Ireland that are run according to the Educate Together Charter. It is an independent NGO that runs schools that guarantee equality of access and esteem to children “irrespective of their social, cultural or religious background”, are learner centred in their approach to education and are run as participatory democracies, with respectful partnership between parents, pupils and staff. It was established over 40 years ago with the setting up of the Dalkey School in 1978. Our own school began in 1992.
