The new second level school planned for Naas has a scheduled opening date of September 2021.

Naas Community College is currently located at a building on Craddockstown Road where it has been since 2015.

The  plan was for the school to transfer to a new site at Millennium Park.

According to former TD and Labour general election sandidaftre Emmet Stagg it is expected that tender documents for the project will issue in the second quarter of this year.  “Once the tender process has been completed, construction can be expected to begin on site,” he said.

Me.Stagg added: “The Minister for Education further advised that at this point, it is not possible to provide an exact and accurate timeline either for completion of the tender process or for completion of any later stages of the project.”

He also said Minister stated that the project remains on schedule to be completed before September 2021.

The mixed and non-denominational school will be big enough to accommodate 1,000 students.
