Priest of State for Unique Education and Inclusion, Josepha Madigan TD, visited the newly-opened Our Lady of Hope Special School in Crumlin earlier this month, composes Rachel Cunningham.
This institution initially opened its doors to students earlier this academic year to satisfy climbing need for unique institution locations in the location. Priest Madigan was welcomed by the school principal, Sr Edel O’Connor, along with college team, college managers, as well as agents of the institution’s client body.
She had the chance to visit class and meet with trainees, many of whom did not have a special school location prior to the college opened.
Priest Josepha Madigan said: “Our unique colleges are vital parts of our education and learning system and perform a crucial role. I am identified to remain to sustain the job of special colleges as well as to guarantee they are protected for years to come.
“The opening of brand-new special institutions, such as this set, is a testament to this. The record funding for unique education and learning safeguarded in Spending plan 2022 will certainly guarantee the provision of more teachers and unique requirements assistants in our special colleges, as well as added special school places.”
