Curragh Girls NS gets Department funding for summer renovations
12:37 Friday 18th of May 2018
Curragh Girls National School has been approved for funding of between €700,000 and €750,000 for renovation works over the summer months.
Classes will resume as normal in September following the upgrade of facilities.
The School was granted the summer works scheme last summer for the refurbishment of the school.
However with rising costs, this grant was not adequate to complete the works.
But the school was recently informed that further applications for renovations under the Emergency Works Scheme have been successful.
The project will take place during the summer under the guidance of Coghlan Architects.
Principal teacher Ciarán O'Toole said: "This investment of between €700,000 and three quarters of a million euro in the Curragh Girls School is a great endorsement by the Department of Education.
"It ensures top of the range facilities to match the quality of teaching and learning (Dept. Education and Skill report 2010) for children attending the Curragh GNS presently and into the future.
"The works should be completed in time for the new school year in September."
Places are still available for the new school year. Phone 045441458 or email [email protected]
