The new canteen/general purpose room will be in addition to the phase one plans, which was announced last June by the school’s principal Anthony Doogan and Councillor Martin Farren.
Last June, Mr. Doogan revealed that the plans for phase one included five general classrooms, one science laboratory, one home economics room, one technology room, one learning support room and ancillary works to include toilets, stairs, lift and electrical works.
