After three summers under construction and €5 million in investment the newly refurbished and extended Loretto Secondary school will open it’s doors over the coming weeks.

The extension includes 15 new classrooms at the school which now has a student population of 850 making it the biggest school in the city.

One of the focal points of the extensions is the new entrance which ‘brings the school out into the community’, according to principal Colm Keher.

There is also a state-of-the-art music room which overlooks St Canice’s and St Mary’s Cathedrals, a new drama room, two new computer rooms and a new chemistry lab. A new art block will also be completed over the coming weeks and the home economics room has been refurbished.

The extension is accessible and includes a wheelchair toilet and shower room and a lift. There is also an oratory and a meditation garden and more open space in the grounds with sitting space. New heating and electrical systems have been installed in the old part of the school.
