A few posts back, I outlined that a new school had been agreed for Naas and that work had recently commenced, at a Craddockstown location, opposite the nursing home on the Craddockstown road. A number of people had queries about this, so here are further details of the plan:
- The school being built at Craddockstown road is to primary school specification.
- The school will temporarily open as a Secondary School in September 2014.
- It will begin enrolment one year at a time ; only first years will start in 2014.
- A site for a secondary school at Millennium Park is being sourced in parallel.
- Millennium Park is intended as the long term home of the new secondary school.
- Once Millennium Park site is operational the secondary school will move there.
- The Craddockstown site will then begin functioning as a regular primary school.
- Campus will include turn-around and drop-off facilities for traffic management.
- A new footpath and pedestrian crossing will be added along the road outside.
This all makes a lot of sense as the new school buildings will carry on, once the secondary moves across to Millennium Park, a new primary will function at Craddockstown instead.
