Corbally all-girls secondary school Ardscoil Mhuire has been appointed a design team for their new 650 pupil school, initially approved last month by Minister for Education Norma Foley.
Following Minister Foley’s announcement, work began immediately on the new school base.
The current design stage is a huge step toward finishing the state-of-the-art Ardscoil Mhuire school development and will allow for a full plan to be outlined.
The design team must prepare a Stage 1 Report, which will be given to the Department of Education for approval.
The school will have two special education classrooms and will be built adjacent to the current school building.
Ardscoil Mhuire shared their excitement at the news, saying, “Ardscoil Mhuire is delighted to announce that we have just gone to tender to appoint the design team for our brand new, multi-million-euro school development. Exciting times ahead for our school community!”
Johanna Fitzgerald, Head of Educational Psychology at Mary Immaculate College commented, “Fantastic news for the entire school community. Exciting times ahead for an incredible school”.
“I wish to commend the school, staff and board of management for their work here on the project which will greatly benefit the school, students and families,” added Limerick Fine Gael TD, Kieran O’Donnell.
Limerick manufacturer Cook Medical, which has a great relationship with the school, said “Congratulations Ardscoil Mhuire. We wish you the very best with this exciting new development and look forward to continuing our long association with you.”
