Kilkenny school’s expansion plans back on track
Plans to expand a small national school in county Kilkenny are back on track after the council received updated plans for the project.
In August the Board of Management of Scoil Bhríde National School in Lisdowney lodged an application with Kilkenny County Council seeking permission to build a new one classroom extension.
In late October the local authority requested further information on aspects of the project, which they have now received.
The 76-pupil school which opened in 1989, currently has three mainstream teachers, a special class teacher for autistic spectrum disorder (ASD), a shared learning support teacher, a part-time resource teacher, as well as two special needs assistants.
The development will consist of the construction of a new single-storey extension to the existing main school building comprising of one additional mainstream classroom, a link corridor and all associated site works.
A decision on the application is expected by the middle of January.
