East Galway Fine Gael Minister Ciaran Cannon has welcomed confirmation from Education Minister Joe McHugh that his officials will now make renewed contact with the Board of Management of Presentation College Headford with a view to developing a major new extension to the school.
The school is experiencing significant annual increases in enrolment and finding it very difficult to accommodate these increases in prefabricated classrooms.
“My colleague Cllr. Andrew Reddington invited me to visit Presentation College Headford on the 23rd of August last and there I met with the school’s Board of Management. They outlined to me that their pupil numbers have now reached 800 and the school is finding it very difficult to cope with these numbers in substandard prefab classrooms.
