“I especially want to thank the school Principal, Board of Management and all involved at the school for making the application to the Department for these special needs children.

“I am very pleased that this has now been approved by the Minister.

“As the extension has just been approved there are no details in relation to the final cost of this project.”

Deputy Flanagan said: “I welcome the announcement and welcome a new modern well-run school in an area of increasing population growth.

“This is further good news for Education in County Laois.

“Fine Gael in Government is determined to support students with additional needs and their families.

“We know that education is vital in ensuring that every child can reach their full potential.

“I am delighted that pupils will have a modern school facility in which they can happily learn and grow.”
