Holy Rosary NS Needs a New School Built NOW

Holy Rosary School(Ballycragh, Dublin 24) needs a new school built NOW. In April 2005 the new building project for Holy Rosary National School (formally known as Ballycragh NS) was one of 124 school building projects allowed to progress through the architectural planned process. These schools were \"assessed as being priority projects\" and were described as being \"in areas where demand for school places is increasing or current facilities are considered inadequate to cater for existing needs\". It is now 2008. There is STILL no sign of our new school building. It is no longer a priority project. It has become an emergency project. The staffroom is hugely over-crowded. There is NO school hall for assembly, sports, etc. There are teachers eating lunch in the corridors. There are teachers working in the corridors. There are safety concerns about teachers forced to drive through school yard at peak times due to lack of adequate staff car parking. There is also no access for disabled staff/pupils. The current prefabricated buildings are COSTING the department
