Education, Funding, Navan, School extension

2 Meath West schools have recently been approved for Emergency
Work/Access for All (Loreto Secondary School) and Additional
Accommodation (St. Brigid’s NS, Cortown – 1 X 80m2 mainstream
classroom inc en-suite& 1 x WC for assisted users).

There are also 2 schools in Meath East – St. Peter’s College,
Dunboyne and Yellow Furze NS, Beauparc, Navan.

Minister English stated: “I congratulate the Principals, Boards of
Management and Parent Associations of St. Brigid’s NS, Cortown and
Loreto Secondary School in Navan for seeking this vital funding for
their students and staff. Fine Gael in Government since 2011 have
prioritised funding for Education, especially for providing new school
buildings and new facilities that are needed locally.  Education is
the driver of a sustainable economy and of of our local communities,
especially our rural communities.  I will continue to work with Meath
West based schools for additional necessary resources in the New Year
and beyond.

No details are given of the amount of funding approved by the School
Building Unit, as the publication of the amount of grant aid
sanctioned could prejudice the tendering process for an individual

The School Building Unit of the Department of Education will issue
detailed letters on the relevant projects directly to the school
authorities and these letters will inform the school authorities of
the amount of grant aid sanctioned by the Department.
