“This is an important milestone in the proud history of Seamount College. This new development will significantly enhance the facilities available to students and staff at Seamount College and will allow for even greater subject choice. I was delighted to be able to work closely with the Principal and the Board of Management to make a strong case for the funds for this new development. This is the single largest investment ever made by my department in education in Kinvara and I am confident it will reap great dividends in the future.” Minister Ciaran Cannon. “We are delighted to have turned the sod on our refurbishment and new building works at Seamount College. The proud tradition of teaching and learning in the school will be enhanced by an additional science lab, a technical graphics room, a new computer and music room and 2 new general classrooms as well as upgrading of the present building. Students and staff will benefit from these improvements for many years ahead. Great credit is due to all those involved in getting us to this stage, in particular Minister Ciaran Cannon who is fully committed to the provision of second level education in Kinvara and who gave freely of his time to ensure this project received department funding.The school benefits from the dedication of a hard working Board of Management who have worked tirelessly to achieve this goal. Our parent’s committee are fully supportive and volunteer long hours to enhance the work of the school and to fundraise so that we can continually improve upon the services on offer. There is an air of anticipation around the school awaiting the final handover of the new building in time for the start of the new school year so that our present school population will avail of the new facilities as well as those preparing to commence with us. The design team consists of Brendan Slevin & Associates Consulting Engineers, John Britton Consulting Civil & Structural Engineers, Tom Mc Namara & Partners Chartered Quantity Surveyors with Joe Byrne acting as Project Manager. This team have worked hard to ensure that the delivery of maximum benefit to our students in an aesthetically pleasing building has been planned, with room for future development. We have strived to ensure that the best value for money is obtained from the funds provided by the department who have been very supportive to our efforts. Theydesign team will continue to work closely with the building contractor Pat Mc Hugh & Sons Ltd who has been assigned the contract to complete the project.”
