Derry school's enrolment to increase

A south Londonderry primary school has been granted permission to increase its enrolment numbers.

Education Minister John O'Dowd yesterday approved a development proposal to increase the capacity at St Brigid's Primary School, Mayogall.

"St Brigid's is a popular school which has been significantly and consistently oversubscribed in recent years," he said.

"It is clear, therefore, that demand for places at St Brigid's is particularly high and an increase to both the approved admissions number and the long-term enrolment is needed.

"Taking all the relevant information into account, I am content to approve the proposal to the admissions number from 26 to 35 pupils and the overall enrolment to a maximum of 245 pupils."
