New School Name Campaign Launched

Earlier this year, it was announced that three schools in Ballyfermot, St John’s College, Caritas College and St Dominic’s College, will amalgamate into St John’s College.

The three schools are to launch the ‘New School Name Campaign’. They want to hear ideas from all members of the Ballyfermot community and beyond about what would be the best name for the new school when the three secondary schools come together as one.

When choosing a name, you should consider the following criteria:

  1. Ballyfermot – Its History & Community Spirit
  2. The Ethos, Traditions and Values of Our Three Schools
  3.  A New Catholic Co-educational School Open to All

.Applications are open November 2nd until November 13th.

There will be prizes on offer for anyone who submits a name that is shortlisted in the Top 5 Possible Names!

You can submit your suggestion here or email or text 086 794 3544.
