Tina and Roisin were welcomed to the school by staff, pupils and governors. The school has been marking its 25th anniversary throughout this academic year and this latest step towards a new building is a fitting culmination of the celebrations.
The work is due to be completed by summer 2018 and will include top-of-the-range technology as well as interactive outdoor spaces, and the parking and access needed for parents.
A spokesperson for the school said Said
“Everyone at Corran is very excited about the new development and looking forward to moving into a new home in September next year. We would also like to thank the IEF for supporting a marketing campaign to promote the creative and inspiring learning environment our school offers to the local community.”

“This is a great step forward for a great school. Corran IPS has been doing fantastic work ior twenty-five years in buildings which were intended to be temporary. With help from generous IEF donors who have supported the establishment of the school library, the school has managed to provide an excellent learning experience and now will be able to offer and excellent environment as well.”
