Written answers (Question to Education)

I propose to take Questions Nos. 173, 175, 177 and 178 together.

The post primary student data in the following spreadsheet gives details of national student enrolment figures for schools years 2014/15, 2015/16 and 2016/17.

I wish to advised the Deputy that the enrolment figures for 2016/17 are still only provisional. The officials in my Department advise that these will be finalised in the coming weeks. The spreadsheet includes student date as follows;

- National enrolment figures for first year students

- National enrolment figures for second year students and

- Overall student enrolment figures for mainstream students only.

1st and 2nd and total mainstream nationally for 2014/2015, 2015/2016 and 2016/2017
