It has been confirmed that discussions have been completed to situate the new school buildings on the North Kildare Eduacate Together site in Celbridge to allow school start up in September. This will allow the planning process to be completed for the temporary school on the Mooretown site and for the appointed contractor to carry out site works and construction once planning is obtained.

It was confirmed to me, that it is envisaged the new temporary school should be completed on the Mooretown site by November/December 2015. It is important that this facility is in place for all the children that’s enrolled and their parents/guardians.

I will continue to work with all stakeholders to ensure the flooding issue is resolved permanently so that the planning can be resubmitted as soon as possible for the new permanent school on the Hazelhatch Road site.
