Recently the Department of Education and Skills directed a minimum time that must be allocated to a class period in schools. In line with this we have made some changes to our timetable for the coming 2017/2018 academic year. The main points to note are:

  • All class periods are of 40 minutes duration
  • The first class begins at 08.55 each morning
  • Classes finish at 15.50 on both Monday and Tuesday and at 15.10 on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday
  • The morning break extends from 10.55 to 11.10 each day
  • Lunch is from 13.10 to 13.50 each day (ie lunch break is 40 minutes long)

Clare County Council has granted permission for a substantial expansion project at Ennis Community College and Gaelcholáiste an Chláir. The planners made their decision on Wednesday having received applications on behalf of the school from Limerick and Clare Education and Training Board.

“We are thrilled with the decision to grant permission for this development”, said the school principal Brian O’Donoghue. “The project will see a build of over 4,100 square metres. It includes multiple classrooms and specialist rooms such as science labs. Also included is a full size state of the art sports hall. We have been in Ennis since 1938 and this is a very significant development which will greatly benefit our students and the community of Ennis.”

Construction is expected to begin in the coming months.

The annual student awards were presented this week. Here are the winners from Second Year.
