Waterford school unveils plans to demolish prefabs and build new classes
A county Waterford school is looking to create build three new permanent classrooms to replace prefabs that have been used to educate local children for several years.
St Mary’s Primary School on the Youghal Road in Dungarvan has lodged an application with Waterford City and County Council to demolish four existing prefabricated classrooms to build the new rooms.
The plans would involve the construction of three new classrooms in a single-storey building and each classroom will come with an en-suite toilet. There will also be a new assisted users WC and a covered corridor connecting the new extension to the existing school.
St Mary’s National School was created in 1990 following the amalgamation of the Mercy Sisters and Presentation Sister primary schools.
The school currently caters for around 280 male and female students.
