The official opening of the extension to Rearcross NS took place on Sunday October 23rd at 4.00 pm. His Grace Archbishop Dermot Clifford performed the ceremony and blessed the building in front of a large gathering consisting of the entire staff of the school, all the 73pupils, their parents, grandparents and many local people. Afterwards, in spite of the very inclement weather conditions on the day, everybody made the short trip to the nearby Community Centre where they enjoyed some light refreshments and entertainment.
The original school building was opened in 1970 by his Grace Archbishop Morris. The school now consists of 3 large classrooms, a GP room, Learning Support Room, Staff Room and Office and ample playground facilities.
