€30m Investment for Schools under Summer Works Scheme
Posted by Alan Kelly on April 28, 2016 at 03:53 PM
I can cofirm today that 8 more schools across Tipperary will be able to undertake school improvements following the announcement of the Summer Work's Scheme.
I am delighted that these schools in Tipperary will benefit from the scheme this year. Of the €80 million announced for the multi-annual Summer Works Scheme (2016-2017), €30 million is now being allocated for vital gas works and electrical upgrades in schools. The majority of works will be carried out in schools over the summer months, so as to minimise disruption to students, teachers and other school staff.
This is positive news for schools. It will also provide an important capital injection to the construction sector and boost job creation.
