Creagh College will receive €3,000 to support the roll out of new Leaving certificate subjects this September.

Computer Science and Physical Education will be on the curriculum for the first time to make sure the education system keeps pace with the changing society and the evolving needs of the economy.

Minister Michael D'Arcy said he is delighted that Creagh College in Gorey is taking part in the roll out of the new Leaving Cert subjects.

'Education is vitally important and needs to keep pace with the changing needs of our society,' said Minister D'Arcy.

Creagh College will receive €3,000 for Computer Science, and they will also receive a grant for PE based on student participation. The figures will not be available until after September.

Minister D'Arcy added the introduction of PE as a full examinable Leaving Certificate subject reflects the priority this government puts on promoting healthy lifestyles and choices.
