I want to raise the issue of Borrisoleigh national school, a successful school with a constantly increasing enrolment. It needs more special needs assistant, SNA, hours as well as building work to deliver extra space as quickly as possible. It also needs an additional teacher. There are 37 students in a classroom of 60 sq. m, which is not acceptable. There is a general acceptance by the Department of Education that extra resources are required for the school, but I wish to discuss the length of time it is taking the school's applications for the building works and additional teacher to be processed. We would like to see the process streamlined and decisions reached much more quickly than is the case currently.
