Need to progress building project at St. Aidan’s Comprehensive School

Date of issue 5/01/2021

I welcome the decision by my colleague the Minister for Education, Ms Norma Foley TD to approve funding in respect of 4 specialist classrooms at St. Aidan’s Comprehensive School, Cootehill.

This is a welcome development and I am very glad to have supported the school’s application for additional permanent accommodation.  This upgrading of classroom accommodation will enhance considerably the school’s facilities.  The 4 specialist rooms are Engineering Room, Engineering Prep Room, Construction Prep Room and Home Economics Room.

I compliment the entire school community, namely the Principal Ms Marianne Smith and her staff colleagues, the Board of Management and the Parents’ Association on their efforts to have additional accommodation and upgraded facilities provided at St. Aidan’s.
