Coolick National School has been given the green light for a significant school building project.

Minister for Education and Kerry TD Norma Foley announced the approval of an extensive school building project under the Additional Accommodation Scheme.

The project brief for Coolick NNS consists of the provision of a mainstream classroom, one Special Education teaching room and the provision of a classroom for children with special educational needs.
It also provides for the reconfiguration of smaller classrooms.

Additional sanitary facilities, including a universal access facility, are also part of the designated works.

This building project has been devolved to the school authority who will appoint a design team for the delivery of each project.

The school authority and its design team will then progress the project through the architectural planning and statutory approvals process.

“I am delighted to announce this significant building project for Coolick National School which will greatly enhance the provision of education in the Killarney region," Minister Foley said.

"This investment is further proof of the excellence in education provided by Coolick National School and it represents a deserved recognition for the hard work of the staff and students and the wider school community.”
