Gardenfield National School, Tuam, has received approval for a new classroom from the Department of Education and Skills.
This is excellent news, which will allow the school to expand its teaching capacity.
It will be an 80m2 mainstream classroom plus en suite with a total floor area of 95m2.
I want to congratulate the staff, parents, students and Board of Management on achieving this outcome.
I also want to thank my colleague, the Minister for Education and Skills Joe McHugh TD, for supporting the school’s application.
It is essential that we continue to support our rural schools so that they can improve and expand the facilities they offer
