Fine Gael TD for Galway West & Mayo South

28 Galway Schools to benefit from Summer Works Scheme improvements this summer

Over the summer investment will take place in 28 schools across Galway as part of the Department of Education’s Summer Works Scheme. 22 primary schools in Galway and six secondary schools are benefiting under the Scheme which facilitates major improvements in school infrastructure.

My colleague, the Minister for Education, Richard Bruton TD confirmed the investment to me today.

This year’s categories of funding focus on mechanical works, the upgrading of toilet facilities and improvement or replacement of roofing. Eight primary schools in Galway will undergo mechanical improvements, four primary schools will receive upgrade works to toilet facilities while ten primary schools and six secondary schools will benefit from major improvements to roofing.

This investment is structured to that, where possible, works are carried out during schools holidays so as to minimise disruption to pupils, parents and teachers. The works are also a great boost to local construction companies and employment.

Last year’s categories of gas and electrical works saw improvements to eleven schools in Galway. Taken with this year 39 schools have now benefited from the first two years of this multi-annual Summer Works Scheme.

Priority/Category 1:                 Gas Works
Priority/Category 2:                 Electrical Works
Priority/Category 3:                 Mechanical works
