ON VISIT BY EDUCATION MINISTER TO HOLY FAMILY SCHOOL
The accommodation in the new school complex is extremely impressive and finished to a high standard. Great credit is due to the Design Team and all who contributed to that essential preparatory work and also all the tradespeople who delivered this building to these high standards.
Over the years I have been glad to strongly support the work of the Principal and her staff colleagues, successive Boards of Management, Parents’ Associations and the wider school community in their efforts to get this much needed new school building. Well done to all who worked to bring us to this day to ensure that the students and staff will have the most modern educational facilities. I had highlighted to successive Education Ministers the need to provide modern and adequate permanent accommodation for the Holy Family School and to ensure that the school would have the facilities to cater for a consistent increase in enrolment, which has been experienced over the years.
The Holy Family School has provided great educational services for children from all over Cavan and Monaghan and every good wish to all for the future. Delighted that my former good Dáil colleague and friend Dr. Rory O’Hanlon was present today as he was a founding member of the Holy Family School and has been such a good friend to the school for well over 40 years.
