Carlow Educate Together National School was built in 2008. After starting off in an 8 classroom building in the Shamrock Business Park, a new school 16 classroom school with 2 integrated classes for children with ASD was constructed.
Carlow Educate Together National School opened an integrated class for children with ASD on January 7th, 2009 and a second on 29th August 2013. This class can cater for up to 12 children. There are 6 members of staff in the classes. The Special classes provide children an opportunity to integrate with the mainstream classes and creates an inclusive atmosphere. An added feature for children in the school is the addition of a multi-sensory room and an Occupational Therapy room.
Carlow ETNS opted for self installation of 24 Traverse Climbing Boards which were affixed to an external fence.
