Lanesboro Community College is in line for a major expansion following a recent contract signing, writes Liam Cosgrove.
Longford and Westmeath Education and Training Board officials officially shook hands with Phillip Brady Architects and Dervin Construction at Lanesboro Community College over the planned extension.
When complete, the newly expanded facility will include a new classroom, resource room and state-of-the-art science room as the school looks expands to provide students with a greater learning experience.
Liz Lavery, Director of Schools for the LWETB said: “This building will be a wonderful addition to Lanesboro Community College.
“We have worked hard to get to this point and look forward the project being completed and ready for the students to use in the new academic year”.
The school principal, Bernice Martin said the new science lab will offer a “fantastic resource” for students, thereby giving them the facilities they need to continue to excel in the area of science.
“Their success in recent years in BT Young Scientist and Scifest has been remarkable and it will be wonderful for the students to have the modern science laboratory to continue their great work,” she said.
Construction is expected to begin during the Easter break.
