New ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) unit for Fethard Secondary School
The department of Education recently sanctioned a new extension for Patrician Presentation Secondary School, Fethard. This extension will consist of two ASD special classes catering for Autism Spectrum Disorder, a Woodwork room, Multimedia room, Textiles and Art room, and some new offices.
In recent months the school has been granted temporary accommodation to provide one ASD class, while waiting for the main building to be completed. This temporary building is the new prefab on the left as you enter the school. The name of this new classroom will be called ‘Galileo’.
Allowing for the safe return to school, students are returning on a staggered basis since August, when all new 1st Years started their academic learning at Fethard Patrician Presentation Secondary School. We are delighted to say this temporary special classroom will be completed in early September for use by students.
