Turning the Sod - February 2015
We were delighted to welcome the Secretary General of the Department of Education and Skills, Seán Ó Foghlú, and the Tánaiste, Joan Burton, to Hansfield ETSS on February 13th for a sod-turning ceremony to mark the commencement of work on our permanent school.
Other local representatives, Department and Council officials and friends also joined us to mark this important milestone in the life of the school. We expect our new building to be completed by summer of 2017.
Students composed and performed instrumental music, and rap and a poem for the occasion.
All our visitors enjoyed our performances, displays and debates, and were very interested to learn about our Integrated Learning projects.
