The school facilitates over 400 students and is currently at full capacity. The school has a number of classrooms in temporary accommodation and is in urgent need of development.

Minister Doyle added, “The principle and staff must be commended for their dedication to the school and their on-going efforts to ensure that this development progresses to the next stage. I will continue to work with the school, the board of management and the parents council on this matter and I look forward to seeing the development of the school  in the near future”.
