In September 2019, St Patrick’s Girls’ National School and our school made a joint submission to the Department of Education requesting to open ASD/special classes on our shared campus. We are delighted to announce that the Department of Education has now approved our project to demolish our existing PE hall and rebuild to include 4 ASD/special classes with a new PE hall on top. This will be 2 ASD/Special classes for the boys’ school and 2 ASD/Special classes for the girls’ school. Anne, (Principal of the boys’ school) and myself are now working to appoint a design team to include an architect, a civil engineer, a quantity surveyor and a building services engineer. We will keep the community up to date with progress re our joint project. We do not yet know when the construction work will begin and when the classes will be ready to open. Many thanks, IanĀ
