I have received confirmation from the Dept of Education that the construction work on the extension of Craughwell National School is to commence on the 6th September. The successful contractor is to mobilise in the coming weeks with the building work to comment in the first week in September,
“This is great news for the School, the Board of Management, Staff, Pupils and Parents”.
“This project has been on the agenda for too many years. I expect the construction work to have an estimated building programme of 9 months”.
“The much-needed school extension includes a two-story extension of 1,628 Square metres to the existing school to replace the prefab classrooms”.
“The extension includes eight new classrooms, a general-purpose sports hall, a multipurpose room, administration offices, principal’s office, access lift, toilets, carpark and a drop off and pick up area”.
“This project is long awaited by the community in Craughwell, and I look forward to the building contractor moving on site and I expect that the project will now be delivered without any further delay”.
