Schools submit plans for new building extensions
By Laura Lyne
THE footprint of two primary schools located in Esker, Lucan look set to increase, as the Board of Management for the schools has submitted an application for extensions to both Scoil Aine Naofa SNS and St Thomas’ JS.
The proposal sees the construction of a new two-storey extension to Scoil Aine Naofa SNS, which will extend over 1,008 sqm and include six new classrooms.
Also included within the extension will be seven special education teaching rooms, a library and resource room and a new single-storey entrance lobby extension to the school.
St Thomas’ JS will also see the construction of a new single-storey 975 sqm extension to its premises.
It will consist of four new classrooms, seven special education teaching rooms, a general purpose room, a library and resource room and storage.
Both schools will also see some refurbishment works to current buildings, including the replacement of some windows and external doors.
A decision on the extensions is due from South Dublin County Council by October 10, with submissions accepted on the application until September 19.
