A new school building for St. Mary’s Special school in Navan has begun construction in Johnstown educational campus.

The new St Mary’s Special School development involves the construction of a split-level two-storey school with facilities catered towards education. These invlude a computer and home economics room, library, a daily living skills room, as well as a general purpose room and full kitchen and dining facilities.

“Many thought this day would never come but the builders are on site, the foundations are being laid and the end is in sight,” local TD Thomas Byrne said in a twitter post. “I look forward to walking into the new state of the art school in 18 months,” Byrne continued.

Minister for Special Education Josepha Madigan, TD Damien English, TD Thomas Byrne and Minister for Justice Helen McEntee turned the sod on the new school building. 

construction on a new extension to Coláiste Na Mí secondary school also began on the same day which includes two and three-storey extensions catering for over 1000 students.

St.Mary’s Special school said in a public statement that  “This building programme and development  marks the next step forward. It is fitting  to mention the colossal amount of work that has happened to date. Thus, ensuring that the design plans are such, that they will make sure we are able to continue to provide the best possible education for our pupils in the changing times ahead.”

Construction is expected to be completed in between 18 months to two years
