One of east Clare’s fastest growing schools has been given the go-ahead for the construction of a new mainstream classroom, including en-suite toilets and a separate WC facility for assisted users.
Ogonnelloe National School has been given the green light from Department of Education and Skills to proceed with an extension. Built in 1995, the school was originally a three classroom school. Since then a learning support room was added in 2010 and one year later a fourth classroom. At present they have seven people on their teaching staff.
Minister of State for Trade, Business & Employment, EU Digital Single Market & Data Protection Pat Breen stated that he is looking forward to working with the school to meet their future requirements. Among them is an office for Principal Marie Roberts.
“I understand the school community would welcome an office for the school principal and further storage for records, and I look forward to working with them in the future to secure these further developments. In the interim I would like to congratulate the Board of Management, staff, parents and indeed students on this most recent development”.
