Craughwell National School’s extension project will be submitted to the Department of Education for approval in early January, Galway East TD and Minister for Rural Affairs Seán Canney has reported.
Minister Canney said: “This a very important project for the community of Craughwell and I am delighted that progress has been made.
“When construction is completed, the school will be significantly enhanced.”
The school’s project consists of a two-storey extension of 1,628 sq metres to the existing school that will replace prefab classrooms.
It will include eight classrooms, a general purpose sports hall, a multi-purpose room, offices for administration and the principal, a lift, toilets, car parking and a drop-off and pick-up area.
Meanwhile emergency works at the school are progressing well.
The school received approval for funding from the Department of Education for roof repairs in September this year.
