School Amalgamation           25/10 10:42 - General (share to everyone) ------------------- This school is due to amalgamate with St Marys Boys National School (17279S) once their new school building is ready.
However according to a report in The Independent the €5m new school building project has come to a halt after a lengthy dispute which the Department of Education claims was about quality. The contractor Manley Construction Co Meath agreed to withdraw from the job two weeks ago after a formal conciliation process. The 24-classroom St Christopher´s primary school Haddington Road Dublin was supposed to open last month but it will be at least another two years before it welcomes pupils.
The site has been idle for months while pupils are crammed into prefabs. St Christopher´s is an amalgamation of existing boys´ and girls´ schools and pupils are already wearing the uniform for the new co-ed. Read more here.
