Extra rooms are to be built at St Brigid’s National School in Carndonagh, it has been revealed this afternoon.
Minister for Education and Skills Joe McHugh announced that St Brigid’s Carndonagh secures works under Additional Accommodation scheme.
Joe McHugh said: “A few days into my new ministerial role and I am delighted to be able to announce this important progress for the staff, parents and pupils at St Brigid’s.
“The work has been cleared under the Department of Education’s Additional Accommodation Programme – a vital aspect of the funding the Department distributes.
“St Brigid’s will get a new mainstream classroom, including an ensuite toilet which will replace a prefab unit that the school has been using.
“And the school has also secured support to get two new Special Education Teacher rooms.
“I spoke to Councillor Mickey Doherty, who is on the board of management at St Brigid’s to pass on the good news.
“I hope the extra rooms bring a new dimension to the school and help create the best learning environment for the teachers and children.”
Councillor Mikey Doherty added: “This is brilliant news. I am delighted for the school, principal Sean Ferry and all the parents and youngsters of St Brigid’s. To say they’re excited is an understatement.”Tags:
