Eleven Galway Schools to benefit from first round of new Summer Works Scheme

Eleven Galway schools are included in the new Summer Works Scheme. The €80 million programme will fund works across ten different categories. This first round will see €30 million invested for electrical and gas works across nearly 200 schools nationwide.

I am delighted to see this investment in schools at both primary and secondary level in Galway. The investment will fund vital electrical and gas works and great efforts will be made to ensure that where possible the works will be carried out during school holidays so as to minimise disruption to the pupils and staff.

The Summer Works Scheme is structured so that work categories are listed in priority with gas and electrical works the top two due to safety. Other categories include toilet facilities, roofing, window projects and structural improvements and funding for these projects will be provided in upcoming rounds of the multi-annual Summer Works Scheme.

By the end of the lifetime of the last scheme which operated across 2014/15 86 schools across Galway benefited.
