The Department of Education has sanctioned emergency funding for St.Teresa's Special School in Ballinasloe.
Roscommon Senator Eugene Murphy says he's delighted with the news. "With ten extra students about to start in September in St Teresa's, the school desperately needed emergency accommodation, and it's terrific to see the funding allocated. I am pushing hard to get a new site for the school over the line. The school provides a massive service to the locality”,Senator Murphy said.
St Teresa’s Special School in Ballinasloe was established in 2008 and is based at the Ballinasloe Enterprise Centre. It caters for children with moderate to profound special needs and has 30 students at present.
