Touch of class: State-of-the-art extension to replace prefab at Kilkenny school
A local primary school has been granted permission to build a state-of-the-art extension in the place of prefabs currently used to educate young children.
Kilkenny County Council has approved the plans put forward by the Board of Management of St Brendan’s National School in Newmarket, near Hugginstown, to build a permanent new structure,
A brand new classroom and a special education teaching/resource room will be constructed as part of the build.
An existing prefabricated structure will be demolished to make space for the new building.
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.
