Plan for Whitehouse Primary School well advanced - Ruane

27 July, 2009 - by Caitríona Ruane


Education Minister, Caitríona Ruane, has said that plans for the new Whitehouse Primary School are progressing well.

Cáitríona said: “Last week when I met the Principal, David McConkey at the school, I said that my Department would do all possible to minimise disruption to the children following the arson attack. Plans are well under way to enable the use of spare capacity in Newtownabbey Community High School supplemented with mobile classrooms so children can return to school after the summer break.

“My Department is also working to progress the planned new school as quickly as possible and we would hope construction can start later this year. Whitehouse Primary, like many schools, plays an important role in the life of the community and it is important strong support is offered to get the school operational as soon as possible.”
