Update on WBS School Building Issues

November 5, 2018 0

The Department of Education and Skills has been advised that the implementation of precautionary measures at a total of 22 school buildings remains on schedule for completion for Monday 5th November. Five teams involving over 250 workers have been on site through the weekend to facilitate the reopening of schools.

The implementation of these measures follows the programme of structural assessments conducted on schools constructed by Western Building Systems.

The top floor of three other Dublin Schools will be out of use while works are carried out, but the students will be accommodated elsewhere in the schools affected. They are Tyrrelstown Educate Together National School, St Luke’s National School, Tyrrelstown and Gaelscoil Eiscir Riada, Lucan.

Phase 1 of Ardgillan Community College in Balbriggan will remain closed on Monday 5th November, as the controversy over school buildings continues.

School principals are being kept fully informed of progress and receive written confirmation as the works are completed.

Arrangements at individual school level are being communicated by the school authorities directly to parents.
