he work may have started last September but today was the official signing of St David’s swanky new extension contract.
On hand for the big occasion alongside the school’s newly-appointed Principal, Simon Carey, was the design team, McCullough Mulvin Architects, and Mythen Construction.
And sitting pretty in the middle of it all was former-pupil-done-real-good, Simon Harris.
The signing of the contracts should have taken place last September too, as the work commenced, but the lockdowns saw the big day being shifted once, shifted thrice, until finally landing on today, Tuesday, August 17th 2021.
As it turned out, the sun was shining, the two-year construction job was going smoothly, and Principal Simon Carey was in his element.
And how could he not be? This refurbishment of the existing forty-two classrooms, dining area, staff room, library and office complex (refurbished in two separate stages; summer 2021 and summer 2022) and the addition of new classrooms (a fourth science lab, a second construction room, a new music room, a new library, two new visual art rooms, a second D.C.G lab and three new regular classrooms), as well as the new sports arena (four times the size of the now knocked-down concert/sports hall), puts St. David’s Holy Faith Secondary School, in the words of Principal Carey, “to the fore in the delivery of excellent in educating the young men and women of Greystones, in the very best 21st century school building“.
We’ll be swinging down to St David’s in a couple of weeks, to see just how 21st century the school is becoming.
Apparently the Tesla ashtrays behind the bicycle sheds are going to be self-cleaning. Nice.
