Progress is being made with the proposed new National Schools Building Project for Tuam.

Sean Canney Independent TD said that the Minister for Education has confirmed to him that the building project for the school is being devolved for delivery to Galway & Roscommon Education and Training Board (GRETB ).”

“The Minister has also confirmed that the Service Level Agreement (SLA ) has been issued to GRETB. The Design Team has been procured and the project will progress through the stages of architectural planning to design the buildings, obtain the necessary statutory planning permissions, and move the project onward to tender and construction in due course”.

The project will provide for the development of two schools consisting of a 41-classroom primary school including 5-classroom SEN for Trinity National School and an Educate Together 8-classroom primary school with 2-classbase SEN. Both projects will be delivered on separate sites.

He said that he also firmly believes that the inner relief road for the town needs to be advanced in tandem with the school projects to ensure ease of traffic movement around the town.

He has also received confirmation from the Minister for Education that progress is being made on the building projects to amalgamate Athenry Boys and Athenry Girls National Schools and the proposed Gaelscoil campus.

“The Minister has confirmed that additional land is required for the new amalgamated national school and that agreement has been reached in principle with the landowner for the acquisition of the land.
