Non religous schools in east cork area?

    Hi all,

    Hope someone can help.

    My child was due to begin Primary school in September but he has been refused admission. I think its because we chose not to baptise him.

    I didnt bother applying to other schools as I was confident he would be accepted. Myself and the rest of my family went to the same school so the argument about past pupils' familys getting priority are not true....?

    So, are there any schools that take children that are not baptised?
    I have looked at other schools in our town and they all give the spiel regarding fairness etc...but at the end of the enrolement forms comes the baptism date...So I give up and have been looking elsewhere

    I need to get him in somewhere, fast.

    Anyone help me?

    Such a stupid, stupid reason for not being allowed entry into a school!
