The really, really good news is that St. Cronan's Senior school is one of the major school projects listed, with construction expected to proceed in 2016.
Brendan Ryan, Labour Party TD, is seen here congratulating Loreto Desmond, Principal, on receiving the wonderful news.
Minister for Children and Youth Affairs, Dr. James Reilly, recently visited St. Cronan's SNS. During his visit to the school he was welcomed by the school wind band. During his visit to Ms. Adam's class he also met with St. Cronan's Student Council which is stewarded by Mr. Neary.
One of three members of the Defence Forces visited our school as part of the nationwide initiative to mark the centenary of the 1916 Rising.
Army personnel presented the school with a handmade Tricolour and explained the significance of the historic Proclamation during a special ceremony in the school hall where the whole school was in attendance.
One of our 6th class students read the fourth paragraph of the Proclamation alongside the officiating officer and everybody stood to attention and sang 'Mo Ghile Mear' and 'Amhrán na bhFiann' accompanied by piano, snare drum, glockenspiel, flutes, tin whistles, violins, guitars, clarineos and recorders.
It was a historic moment for the school and no doubt will be talked about by the children for years to come.
