Call for Urgency in the Refurbishment of Lucan Community College

Gino Kenny Madeleine Johansson

The Parents Association of Lucan Community College recently met public representatives to highlight the ongoing issue of the lack of progress for the proposed extension at the college. The process has been ongoing for the past sixteen years. At present there are over 800 pupils attending the school and there is a waiting list for new entrants. The new refurbishment to the college would be extensive and would include additional classrooms and educational spaces to cater for a better learning environment. The school was built over 40 years ago.

Deputy Gino Kenny who attended the meeting with the Parents Association said, “ I completely agree with the Parents Association frustration with the lack of progress on the refurbishment of Lucan Community College. They acknowledge that the building process is at Stage 3 and the tendering process is underway. The lack of transparency and urgency is affecting pupils, teachers, and parents.  I have written to the Minister for Education requesting that the Department give a clear timeline on when the works will begin. It’s imperative that this happens immediately.”
