Minister Browne commented; “I have been contacted by parents requesting inclusive facilities in the school for pupils with special needs. I am pleased to confirm the Department of Education has informed me there will be a four classroom Special Education Needs base in the new school.

“I know there were concerns such facilities may not have been provided in this new school. These concerns can categorically be ruled out.

“There is a real need for the new school build, not only for a state-of-the-art school campus but also to alleviate pressure on capacity issues for school places in the region.

“The project, which will accommodate 1,000 students, progresses under the guidance of Waterford Wexford ETB,” concluded Minister Browne.
