Doors open in newly revamped Schull Community College
REPRO FREE.
31/03/2016
Pictured at the opening of the Schull Community College state-of-the-art €400,000 extension are Thomas McCann, Eimear Minihane, Lauren O'Sullivan, Aisling Quinn, Padraig Dineen, all members of the Student Council with Brendan Drinan, Principal, Jim Daly TD, Cllr Patrick Gerard Murphy, Rev Dr. Tom Deenihan and Ted Owens, CE Cork ETB.
This impressive new revamp which caters to the 405 students currently enrolled includes two new standalone classrooms with a universal access W.C, to accommodate the needs of all students, full Wi-Fi and top of the range equipment such as short throw projectors. A huge perk of Schulls’ extension is their new therapy room. This investment is crucial for the mental health and wellbeing of students, which is hugely important to the college. The school is now also universally accessible to pupils of all abilities with this new build ensuring all external doors are fully ramped. For more information on this state-of-the-art extension or to enquire about enrolling for the upcoming academic year you can check out, www.schullcommunitycollege.com, or contact the school on 028 28315 or via e-mail at office@schullcommunitycollege.com
