One class could be up and running by September.

Six new classrooms, including two new special educational units have been confirmed for Colaiste Lorcain in Castledermot.

Labour Senator Mark Wall has said the school management and KWETB have been in discussions with the Department of Education about the future infrastructure of the school over the last number of months,  and a proposal to provide additional new accommodation has been received for review by the School Management and KWETB

Senator Wall who is a member of the Board of Management commented: "The new classrooms will allow the School to develop and continue to provide the highest provision of education that the school has become known for.

"I will continue to work with principal, Eric Gaughran, KWETB, fellow Board Members and the entire school community to ensure that that this much needed investment can happen in the quickest possible time," he insisted

"I am very happy to hear that two new Special Need Units are to be provided at Colaiste Lorcain, with the prospect we are informed, that one class may be up and running for September of this year, albeit in temporary accommodation until the two new units are built.

This is very good news for the many families in the area who have contacted me inquiring about the need for a secondary school place for their loved one who may be coming from a primary school special unit or who may have that need now at secondary level," he added
