- Forty seven Cork schools included in the Department of Education Summer Works Scheme 2014.
- Scheme which includes 386 projects nationally and will benefit almost 100,000 students.
I am pleased to welcome that seven schools in Cork South Central will get to carry out either mechanical or electrical work this coming summer. The schools approved for the scheme include four primary and three post primary schools. In total more than 2,600 students in Cork South Central will return to school in September 2014 with improved facilities as a result of this scheme.
In Douglas St Columba’s National School with facility for deaf children will now be able to undertake mechanical works. St John’s Girls National School in Carrigaline will now be able to carry out electrical works. In the city both Greenmount and St Mary’s of the Isle have been approved for works under the scheme.
At secondary level Coláiste Chríost Rí has been included and so has St Peter’s Community School in Passage West. The other school that will benefit is Coláiste Daibhéid on South Terrace.
The Summer Works Scheme is important for many schools as it helps them carry out much needed maintenance and repairs. I welcome the inclusion of forty seven Cork Schools in the 2014 scheme, this will benefit almost 12,000 students across the county.
