Opening of Schools and Calculated Grades: Statements
Danny Healy-Rae (Kerry, Independent)
Some schools, such as Gneeveguilla national school, are at maximum capacity. The community group in that parish is offering its hall or rambling house to the school, which is fully heated and is in great condition. The group owes money for its refurbishment but it has not been able to generate any funds this year as it could not fundraise. Such groups can offer halls or spaces. Obviously, they would like some remuneration for them. Would places like that be considered, given that the school is at maximum capacity at present and that social distancing may be required for the older children? There is work to be done in this area and there are other places like it as well.
