St. Mochtas School Extension Gets Go Ahead

Wednesday, November 5, 2008

At long last the Department of Education has agreed to allow the 16 classroom extension go to planning and tender as soon as possible.

St. Mochta’s had agreed to go from 2 streams to 4 streams to help solve the shortfall in school places so it would have been a terrible betrayal if the extension was not approved. While I welcome the news, the extension should include a community and sport facility similar to that in other schools in the area. Clonsilla Village needs a proper Community Centre. The recent Clonsilla Urban Strategy (Section 8.4) acknowledges the limitations of the two small halls in the village and that “Schools and community can combine to provide the necessary physical infrastructure”. This surely is an opportunity for the Council to live up to its own plan.
