Small Kilkenny school unveils big plans for future
A small national school in county Kilkenny has unveiled plans for a new extension.
The Board of Management of Scoil Bhríde National School in Lisdowney recently lodged an application with Kilkenny County Council requesting permission to build a new classroom.
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 end of October.
