Thornleigh ETNS Extension

An impressive extension to Thornleigh Educate Together National School was completed over the summer, in time for the new school term! 

Thornleigh ETNS ExtensionThe extension adds 10 classrooms, a library, SEN rooms, a parents liaison room and a general purpose hall to the existing 8 classroom school. The expanded state-of-the-art facility will double the capacity of the school and give it plenty of scope to develop as centre of creative learning for many years to come. A big thank you to the Department technical staff, project management team and builders ABM. 

Educate Together CEO Paul Rowe popped in to visit the school last week, here’s his report:

Everyone I met was really enthusiastic. The school now has a proper parents room and general purpose hall. Thornleigh ETNS is a DEIS Band 1 school on account of the large number of children with significant English Language needs. Opened in 2008, Thornleigh ETNS has established itself as a school in which extraordinary learning opportunities are provided for children. The Principal, Paula Carolan has a business and Psychology background and has brought “The Incredible Years” programme to the school. This is a school at which Irish children are learning many languages and finding about many world cultures in the schoolyard and classroom. This state-of-the-art extension will and guarantee the school’s future growth.
