I welcome the news that my Department has sanctioned additional accommodation for St. Joseph’s Mercy Secondary School in Navan.
The school will benefit from 2 new 15m2 Resource Rooms via the devolved grant scheme.
Over the last number of years St. Joseph’s has received €614,030 in Summer Works and other capital grants towards roof works, window replacement, car parking and other works.
With an enrolment of over 700 girls, which has grown steadily in recent years, St. Joseph’s Mercy Secondary School is at the very heart of the community of Navan. I commend the Principal Ms. Mulligan and her Board of Management on their leadership is seeking this additional accommodation for their school, and I am willing to work with them to seek further improvements in the years ahead.
