Some progress has been made on plans to refurbish and extend St Corban’s boys national school in Naas.

According to Labour Party general election candidate Emmet Stagg, the project brief is being finalised and when this is done the plan will then be handed over to architects.

“We have finally made some progress. It’s a pity though that it has taken seven months to get to this stage,” said Mr. Stagg, who lost his seat at the last election in February 2016.

The Department of Education opted to refurbish and extend the building — rather than build a new facility to house the 500 pupils. Since then the Department has visited and assessed the school building.

This was done with the intention of assessing the accommodation needs of the school. Architectural planning will be followed by tender and construction.
