Eleven additional schools have been approved for Summer Works Scheme funding in South Tipperary under the government’s Jobs Initiative
“Eleven schools in South Tipperary were this week approved for funding under the Summer Works Scheme, as part of the Fine Gael-Labour Jobs Initiative. I am very supportive of this funding which will go a long way towards making important improvements to our schools, while also creating jobs in South Tipperary this summer,” said Deputy Tom Hayes .
“In total 21 schools in South Tipperary were successful this year, ten were approved a number of weeks ago, and the eleven additional schools were approved last week. The funding will go to improve primary and post primary schools around the country and the improvements make a huge difference to the schools,” he said.
The projects include funding to replace old windows, change heating systems, improve access, refurbish toilets, among other projects. The works will make the schools safer, warmer and more energy efficient.
“These funds will allow the schools in question to carry out small and medium scale building works. These works will be carried out in these schools over the Summer months, when the pupils are on holidays, so the disruption to pupils and to the running of the school is minimised,” he said.
The eleven additional schools are -
SN Muire na nAingeal, Clonmel (acccess for all), St. Josephs Primary School Tipperary Town, S N Bhride Dun Na Sciath, Curraghpoor, SN An Grainseach, Clonmel and Naomh Padraig (Senior) Drangan- (all for work on toilets), Scoil Mhuire, Cill Mheanman, Thurles and Scoil Mhuire, Greenhill, Carrick-on-Suir, (for work on roofs), C.B.S., Carrick-On-Suir, The Abbey School, Station Road, Tipperary Town, Central Technical Institute, Clonmel and Scoil Ruain, Killenaule” (all for work on windows).
