Newtown Boys' to close at midday this week

Monday, September 12, 2016 - 14:15

The Newtown Boy's RC School will close at midday for the remainder of this week as electrical repairs take place.

The school has been experiencing ongoing electrical problems and last week the school's Parents-Teachers Association issued a letter to parents warning them that the lives of their children were at risk. 

The Education Facilities Company Limited began repairs at the school on Saturday and have advised that they will need the rest of the week to continue the work.

A decision was taken to have the school closed at midday this week.
