I have called on the Minister for Education to secure approval for four extra classrooms in Straffan National School. The school currently has the demand for the places and having met with parents I understand just how urgently this additional space is needed.
From my repeated raising of this issue the Minister is well aware of the capacity issues in Straffan National School. Approval must be secured to allow four extra classes to cater for the growing population. The demand is there and it is now over to the Minister to make the correct decision
I intend to the keep pressure on the Minister until the approval is awarded.
