School Building Works Letter to Parents


Building Works on School Site Notice to Parents


Dear Parents/Guardians,

Following a successful Minor Works Application to the Education Authority, we will have Building Works commencing this week on replacing the entire School Roof at a cost of approximately £250,000.  This cost will be covered by the Education Authority and not at a cost to our School Budget.

The replacing of our School Roof is a very positive step and further ensures our local community will have a School Building in St Nicholas’ PS, Ardglass that is kept in excellent condition for our current pupils and going forward for the years to come. This is a good news story for our whole school community as you can imagine getting any government funded Building Works done in this current economic climate is very difficult and rare.

A Site Meeting took place onsite today finalising the Schedule of Works with representatives from the Education Authority present alongside the appointed Building Company and myself to plan the works in a safe and organised manner. Impact to classes and inside school will be minimal and will be closely monitored throughout.  I envisage access to the school for parents, pupils and staff should be as normal and specific areas where scaffolding etc are located will be fenced off appropriately.2023

Builders will be present onsite from later this week to approximately May as an early estimate.  Should any parents have any concerns or have any difficulties during the time of the Building Work onsite, please contact myself or the school office.


Mr Kevin Burns
