Longford and Westmeath Education and Training Board are delighted to announce that Athlone Community College will open a special class in the 2022/23 academic year. This is down to the hard work of the school Principal, Eileen Donohoe, the Senior Leadership Team and the Board of Management who have always advocated for students with additional needs. The school management, LWETB and the Department of Education have worked closely to overcome a number of obstacles to make this integral advancement possible. The opening of this class marks the 13th special class across the 8 LWETB post-primary schools and paves the way for further increased special class provision in Athlone Community College in the near future.
