*** New School Update ***
We were delighted to hear from our patron, Cork ETB, that the planning notice for our new school is posted on site. This is the next step in an exciting journey for our school! The new building for our growing school will be a 24 classroom school with a 2 classroom Special Educational Needs unit, a PE hall, ball courts and play areas. The site is situated between Castlelake and Station Road and will keep us at the heart of Carrigtwohill. We look forward to travelling on this journey with all in Carrigtwohill Community College and Scoil Mhuire Naofa as they also plan for their new schools.
