The Department of Education and Skills has approved grant funding for a major extension and building upgrade works at Inver College, Carrickmacross.
The project will include the construction of a multi-room extension to the existing school building. The significant programme of work will deliver a purpose-built special needs unit, eight multi-disciplinary rooms and accompanying office spaces as well as five general classroom and ancillary bathroom facilities. In addition, the extension will also include six new offices, to include a pastoral office, a guidance room and a first aid room.
Works will also be carried out on existing classrooms to convert them into a science laboratory and an art room. An outdoor play area and additional parking facilities will also be developed.
Cavan and Monaghan Education and Training Board will now appoint a design team to deliver the project.
John Kearney, Chief Executive, Cavan and Monaghan Education and Training Board, said; “This is especially great news for Inver College as the investment will greatly enhance the teaching and learning facilities at the school and ensure that the educational needs of the entire school community are met.”
