A class project: Kilkenny school unveils plans for major new extension
A Kilkenny school has lodged plans with the local council for a major new extension.
The Board of Management of Urlingford National School has applied to the local authority for permission to build an extension comprising of five new education rooms.
If the plans are approved, two new mainstream classrooms and three new special education teacher rooms with user-assisted toilets will be built.
The plans also allow for the re-establishment of the General Purpose hall in the existing school.
If the development proceeds the overall size of the school will increase from 870mts sq to almost 1,200mts sq.
The mixed gender school currently caters for more than 260 pupils.
A decision on the application will be made early in the New Year.
