Given that pupils at Gaelscoil de hIde in Fermoy achieved considerable success during their tenure in the old vocational school building, there’s no telling how high their star will soar given the facilities now available to them.   

On Saturday last, the region’s newest school hosted a ‘la oscailte’ (open day) which afforded members of the public an opportuntiy to see what the future of Irish primary school education looks like.

Going on the evidence presented last weekend, that future is spacious, bright, well laid out, student friendly and equipped with everything teacher and pupil could possibly need.
