St Kevin’s College broke ground on their new extension yesterday (Thursday) in Lisnaskea. 
The school hopes that the works on the new teaching block extension will be completed by Summer 2021. The breaking of the sod coincides with the 50 year anniversary of teaching on the site. The school first opened in September 1970.
 The new teaching block will cost £1m pounds and will consist of seven classrooms, a nurture room, a sixth form study, a canteen area for Post 16 pupils, office and toilets.The extension is being constructed by JDC Contractors, Cookstown in conjunction with the Education Authority.
Principal Gary Kelly said:“It is a fitting tribute to all staff, pupils, parents and governors to see this state-of-the-Art accommodation starting at St Kevin’s College to mark 50 years of education on the site.  St Kevin’s College has experienced significant pupil growth since its formation in 2017 and the student population stands at around 700 pupils. 
“This large pupil body combined with the school’s excellent examination record has proven a great draw for new pupils.”
Mr. Kelly thanked the Board of Governors, Department of Education and Education Authority  for “working so hard and getting the first stage of the College’s redeployment plan a reality.”
The college is also working closely with department of Education on a Secondary School Enhancement Teaching Block which hopefully will begin construction towards the end of 2021.  It is hoped the new building will be ready by Summer 2021.
