Outside there will be a sensory garden, a secure hard and soft play area and nine additional car parking spaces.The upgrade announcement from the Department of Education has been greeted as welcome news for the school community.Local election candidate Evelyn Sweeney said: “This is fantastic news for Dungloe, the teachers and pupils at the school and for the wider community.”“The idea of the design will be to add the new structure to the existing building so it’s all part of the main school building which is at the heart of the inclusive ethos of the school,” she added. Ms Sweeney congratulated the school on their successful application to the Department of Education & Skills and for their vision of the future at Pobalscoil na Rossan. She also paid tribute to the Department officials who have worked on this application thus far.“We are in a fortunate position to have Donegal TD Joe McHugh as our Minister for Education and Skills who has been visiting schools throughout the county, listening to the issues of concern and working with education partners and stakeholders.“Nuacht ar doigh dó Phobalscoil na Rosann ar an Chlochan Liath. Ag súil go mór leis an tógra sea a fheiceál ag dul chún cinn,” Ms Sweeney said.Major extension approved for West Donegal school was last modified: April 16th, 2019 by Staff WriterShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Rosses Community Collegelast_img
