THE pupils at Glenroe Community National School moved into state-of-the-art facilities this week following the successful completion of refurbishment works at the school.

Approval was granted by the Department of Education earlier this year to refurbish the school’s main building. The works on the building help build on a successful first year of operation for the school and increased enrolment this year.

George O’Callaghan, Chief Executive of Limerick and Clare Education and Training Board, commented: “I would like to congratulate the design team appointed by the ETB, as well as the contractor, on the successful completion of the refurbishment to the existing building. The construction project undertaken over recent months will provide state-of-the-art facilities for the pupils in the school.”

Glenroe CNS opened in September 2020 following a collective effort and partnership between the local working group from Glenroe/Ballyorgan Community Council, the Diocese of Limerick, Department officials and Limerick and Clare Education and Training Board.

Julie O’Connor, Head Teacher of the school was on hand to welcome the staff, pupils and parents as they arrived on the morning of the move. She said: “This is the beginning of a very bright and exciting academic adventure for the pupils of the Glenroe Ballyorgan community. I am delighted to welcome you all and wish you many years of fun, laughter, success and fulfilment in Glenroe.”
