That’s class: Kilkenny school unveils plans for new extension to replace prefab
A county Kilkenny primary school is looking to build a much needed extension in place of a prefab that is currently used as a classroom.
The Board of Management of St Brendan’s National School in Newmarket, near Hugginstown, has applied to Kilkenny County Council for permission to build an extension which will include a brand new classroom and a Special Education teaching/resource room for the school.
An existing prefabricated structure will need to be demolished to make way for the new extension.
The existing main building of St Brendan’s National School is a protected structure and the plans for the development have been tailored to take that into account.
The mixed-gender school, which was originally built in the 1920’s currently caters for around 60 students.
A decision on the application is expected by the end of August.
