Approval has been given to the Rosses Community School to replace four prefabricated classrooms with four permanent classrooms.
In addition to this, approval has also been given for four permanent Special Education Classrooms.
The move has been welcomed by MEP Pat The Cope Gallagher who has lobbied for the improvements.
This development will be funded from the Additional Accommodation / Small Grant Schemes by the Department of Education and Skills.
This accommodation will cater for an increase in enrolment to 520 for the academic year 2013 – 2014 at the school whose enrollment has increased from 340 to 520 over the past 6 years.
It is now a matter for the school authorities to engage an architect to design and make the necessary planning application to Donegal County Council.
Pat the Cope who has been involved with many of the developments at the school, including the sports hall and synthetic football pitch, running track and library, has warmly welcomed this approval.
He paid tribute to the successive Boards of Management and in particular the school management and staff.
