New beginning for Rowandale Integrated Primary School

Construction work has officially started on a £9m educational facility designed by Hamilton Architects for Rowandale Integrated Primary School, Moira. 

The investment from the Fresh Start Programme will provide a modern new primary school with 14 classrooms and a nursery unit accommodating over 340 pupils.

Welcoming the start of the project at a sod cutting ceremony, Education Minister Paul Givan said: “The significance of this £9m investment will be reflected in the many benefits it will deliver for pupils, school staff and local families.

“This major project will provide modern new facilities which will help to create a positive learning environment for young people.”

“Schools are the hub of any community, and this investment will have a major impact on the wider local area by creating positive outcomes for many years to come.”

The scheme was first announced in March 2016 and the project is due for completion in late summer 2025.
