AN EXTENSION has been approved for St Michael’s Community College in Kilmihil.

On Friday, Minister for Education, Norma Foley (FF) signed off on the build with formal approval granted by the Department of Education. A design team and project manager are due to be appointed shortly.

Works include ten mainstream classrooms, three Special Education Teacher rooms, two SEN rooms, a brand new textile room, an art room, a project storeroom, a technical graphics room, a science lab and a science preparatory room.

Clare TD, Cathal Crowe (FF) said of the plans, “This will significantly enhance the educational experience of the youngsters coming up through St Michael’s and I look forward to seeing the ground break on this project”.

He added, “I spent many years on the Board of Management of St Michael’s so I know all too well how welcome today’s news will be to Principal Helena Keane and her team”.

Increased enrolment and a broader curriculum will follow as a result, Joe Carey TD (FG) outlined. “The inclusion of upgraded facilities for science, graphics and special projects shows that future generations of pupils at St Michael’s will have a good grounding in the subjects that are expected to prepare them for the careers of the future. I am also delighted with the big emphasis on special needs education which is an issue I’ve been campaigning for over several years”.
