An Online Patronage Process System (OPPS) has been developed by the Department of Education and Skills to provide objective information to all parents which will allow them to make an informed choice about their preferred model of patronage for their child’s education. Parental preferences will be submitted by parents online. We hope you will choose LMETB as the patron of the new eight classroom primary school in Dunshaughlin.
