Nuns Cross NS Ashford, Rathdrum Boys NS, East Glendalough CS, St Mary’s College Arklow, Avondale CC and Dominican College Wicklow are among a total of 34 primary and post primary schools in Wicklow and Carlow to benefit from the Summer works scheme.
Minister for Education, Jan O’Sullivan, allocated a total of 36 million for the schemes nationwide with a significant portion of the money going to Wicklow and Carlow.
Speaking about the scheme, Deputy Andrew Doyle said : “Injecting capital such as this into our school system also allows for greater job creation locally as we see the works on the schools get under way,
The construction sector in both Wicklow and Carlow has been very badly hit during the recession so the Summer Works Scheme for schools is no doubt very welcome for local builders.”
