The Heath NS

Two new classrooms are on the way to The Heath National School following an announcement of additional funding today.

Sean Fleming, Minister of State in the Department of Finance confirmed the announcement by Minister for Education Norma Foley.

This funding is approved under the Additional Accommodation Scheme 2021.

The works that can now proceed as a result of this announcement includes the provision of a new 80 square metre classroom plus on suite toilets.

Also included in this project is a Special Education Teacher room which is also very much a priority for the school.

Fianna Fail’s Fleming said he looks forward to the school putting arrangements in place to ensure these facilities are made available as soon as possible.

He said: “I compliment the Board of Management, Principal and all involved in this very busy school for their work on behalf of their pupils.

“These new works will further enhance the education facilities available in The Heath National School.”
