Meath West Fine Gael T.D. Damien English, the former Junior Education Minister in the last Government and current Minister for Housing and Urban Renewal, has welcome the news that 3 schools in Meath West are to receive extra funding from the Department of Education and Skills under the “Additional Accommodation Scheme”.
Scoil Caitriona Naofa in Oristown is to receive a new mainstream class room, WC for assisted users and a resource room.
St. Ultan’s N.S. Bohermeen is to receive a new mainstream classroom and WC for assisted users.
Scoil Mhuire Secondary School in Trim will see its Central Hall refurbished.
“Education was a key priority of the last Government, and remains so now. Even in bad times Meath got its fair share of funding and many of our schools were refurbished, renewed or got totally new facilities. This must continue now as we bring about a social recovery that matches our economic recovery. I was happy to play my part in this work for education in Meath, along with hard working Principals, dedicated voluntary Boards of Management and concerned parents. I welcome the facilities boost that Scoil Caitriona Naofa Oristown, St. Ultan’s N.S. and Schol Mhuire Trim have received, and wish all their staff and pupils well” stated Minister English.
