Independent TD for Tipperary, Mattie McGrath has welcomed the announcement by the Department of Education of further approval for additional accommodation and emergency works in three Tipperary Schools.
Powerstown National School in Clonmel has been approved for two mainstream classrooms including and ensuite toilet along with a WC for assisted users, a SET Room and one and 1x 80m2 Mainstream, 2x 15m2 SET room Pre fab replacement.
Ballydrehid National School, Cahir has been approved for a mainstream classroom including an ensuite toilet and a WC for Assisted Users along with a 1x 15m2 SET room!
Thurles CBS receives approval for an External Environment Project.
Commenting Deputy McGrath added, “If not done so already, the School Building Unit of the Department will shortly issue a detailed letter on the relevant projects directly to the school authority. The Department does not provide details of the funding amounts as this could influence the tendering process.
I hope and I am sure that this additional funding will greatly enhance the educational development of pupils, enhance the schools environment especially to cater for the needs of all pupils and overall make the learning environment a better place. It is important that we continue to ensure that our children are being educated in modern, state of the art facilities that are fit for purpose and meet the needs of the reforms that are been made to the curriculum that is being taught. I will continue to impress on Government that we have to give schools more certainty over the additional minor works and summer works grants they receive and better lead in times to make it easier for school communities to plan for their futures.”
Please see the Tipperary schools approved for additional accommodation and emergency works.
