We need an extension to our P.E. hall

We have received funding from the Department of Education for our ASD unit and we have submitted plans to connect the school and the Health Centre and incorporate it into the school. The population of the school has doubled over the last 10 years due to the population growth in the Kingscourt area. Our G.P. room is used for morning supervision before school on a wet day from 9.00- 9.20 and the area 12 m x 10 m is too small to accommodate our 425 pupils. We have a letter from our insurance and from the Fire Officer which outlines the need to extend this hall as a result of health and safety issues. We have submitted these to the Department of Education. So far they are not receptive to giving us extra funding. However if we got sponsorship from the businesses around they will reconsider supporting this needed extension. We would appreciate any help from local businesses. We would appreciate any help.
