Permanent Secretary Laura Browne said that in spite of difficulties experienced during construction, the building should be ready by September. She also said that the institution is very user friendly with ample space for the students.

The Multi-purpose Centre will be offering programmes in Electrical, Woodwork, Computer, Clothing and Textile, Food Preparation and Home Management.
