New State of the Art Community School

 

After a 46 year wait and much campaigning on the part of the community, February 26 marked the official opening of the new 4 acre €8 million state-of-the-art community school.

The facilities are superb with each room taking full advantage of the natural light.  The school boasts classrooms, science labs, computer rooms, gym, sports hall, language room, engineering room, construction room, demonstration room with theatre seating, drama, religion and meditation rooms, canteen, lecture halls and outdoor courts are all fitted to the highest specifications and standards to maximise the potential of students.

The four acre site also includes a training football pitch (which will be ready for playing on this summer), five basketball courts which can be used for a variety of sports, dressing rooms, polytunnel, bus shelter, car park and one way pickup/drop off traffic system.

The school currently has 25 teachers and just under 300 students. The new school is built to facilitate approximately 400 students.

We have recorded a 5 min clip of school life so both students and parents have an idea of what we offer: https://vimeo.com/120794922

 

We also recorded a 30 min documentary of the changes in school life before and since we moved to the new community school: https://vimeo.com/147006275
