School Building Extension Aug. 2017.

On August 21st the next phase of our school extension began.This will comprise of one new mainstream classroom, one classroom for our third special class, Nead 3, which is presently housed in the school hall and has been for the past two years. There will also be a safe space and a new sensory room. The existing sensory room will be divided into a safe space and a storage area to serve both classes Nead 1 and Nead 2. The present staff and girls bathrooms in the unit will be relocated in to the new building, a water storage tank will be created and any other ancillary works which may arise will be carried out. The end date for this work is St. Patrick’s week end.

To accommodate access to the work area a new entrance had to be created by the side of the community hall and a temporary roadway built through the grassed area to the side of the school. This area will be out of bounds for the duration of the build. The wooden storage shed to the rear of the present building had to be moved, but however fell apart in the move as it was quite old. With the removal of this shed we now had access to the area between the 5th and 6th classroom and the room used by the present 1st class. This has been leveled off and we hope in the future to create a courtyard area here.  Unfortunately the big fir tree, also to the rear had to be removed as well.
