Esc Director Roan Robinson was delighted to join pupils and staff at the official opening of the new Gaelscoil na gCrann, Irish Medium Primary School in Omagh on 12 October 2022.
Speaking at the opening ceremony, Education Minister Michelle McIlveen said:
“A new building marks a new chapter in the history of a school and brings tangible improvements to daily life, not just for pupils and staff but also for families and the wider community.”
The new £3.85m school includes a seven class primary school and single nursery unit. The building was handed over on 16 July 2020 but due to COVID-19 restrictions couldn’t celebrate the new school opening until now.
Marking the achievements of all involved in the project, the Minister continued:
“I want to acknowledge the efforts of everyone involved in the delivery of the new build, including the school staff, Governors, consultants, contractors and officials and offer my best wishes for the future.”
