Parents knew that the assessments were happening and the Department of Education have kept in direct contact with myself.Marborough was cleared as being okay for use last year, after initial assessments found no need for any precautionary measures to be put in place.“So after further investigation works it was found that more work would need to be carried out. They informed me of this earlier this week and a message was sent parents,” said principal Buggie.Maryborough NS was only one of five buildings constructed by Western Building Systems in the midlands which is deemed safe to reopen.Since then, engineers have carried out more detailed assessments.The necessary works will be carried over the summer break next year.SEE ALSO – Gardaí issue advice for Electric Picnic attendees Here are all of Wednesday’s Laois GAA results Pinterest All set for start of term at Laois school, despite temporary works needing to be carried out Twitter WhatsApp Facebook Previous articleThe Academic and more heading to Electric Picnic’s Jerry Fish Electric SideshowNext articleOur guide to what’s on this weekend Siun Lennonún Lennon joined LaoisToday in a full-time capacity after studying Journalism and New Media in the University of Limerick.
