St Clare’s Primary School, Cavan Town hosted the first official visit of the Minister for Education, Norma Foley TD., to Co. Cavan.

“I was glad to arrange Minister Foley’s visit to St. Clare’s, which she described as a school of excellence.  Minister Foley paid tribute to the work of Alma Leonard Principal, Marie Brady Deputy Principal and all their staff colleagues on their leadership, work and commitment in St. Clare’s.  She referred to the importance of a strong school community and she knew from her Department that this is truly present in St. Clare’s.  The Kerry TD and former teacher paid glowing tributes to the entertainment provided by the pupils and also to the staff members involved in preparing for the visit and she appreciated the very warm welcome.

I was delighted that my colleague, Minister Foley, confirmed that the tender process is being progressed for the major building project at St. Clare’s.  She also referred to the state of the art accommodation that will be provided with the new buildings and it will be an exciting and positive time for this school community”, stated Brendan Smith TD.
