Elaine Fagan's son, Henry, is on the waiting list for 2 schools.

A Kildare mother, queuing outside a secondary school since 5.30am this morning, says the school enrollment system in the county should be reformed.

Elaine Fagan's son, Henry, is on the waiting list for 2 schools.

She spoke to Kildare Today on August 10th, and at that time, her son had not received an offer of a place

Henry, during the first round of offers, was told that he was 190th on the waiting list for Naas Community College, and 90th for Naas CBS.

Henry has since moved up the waiting lists, but does not have an offer of a place.

Elaine Fagan has praised the NCC staff for their communication and engagement with her.

Speaking to Kildare Today from outside the school, Elaine says other parts of Ireland have developed better systems of enrollment.
