Sixteen Clare Schools to benefit from Summer Work Scheme - Minister Pat

May 3rd, 2017 - Pat Breen

Summer Works Scheme Part of €500m Education Capital Investment Plan

Sixteen schools from Clare are to receive funding in the second round of this year’s Summer Work
Scheme, according to Minister for Employment and Small Business Pat Breen.

“A total of 14 primary schools and two post primary schools from the county are to receive funding
to upgrade mechanical, sanitation and roofs in school buildings. This majority of this necessary
work will take place during the Summer holidays so as to avoid disruption for the school
communities,” said the Clare minister of state.

“My colleague, the Minister for Education and Skills, Richard Bruton is to provide €47 million
through the summer works scheme to 438 schools nationwide.

“The success of this Summer Work Scheme is its capacity to allow the schools to take the lead in
delivering small and medium-scale projects. I am confident that school authorities in Clare will be
able to achieve best value for money on prices for this work, and are also best placed to understand
the requirements of their students and teachers,” said Minister Breen.

“Today’s announcement confirms the Government’s continuing prioritisation of capital funding for
school buildings which will enhance the learning and working environment for pupils and teachers.

In 2017, the Department of Education will invest almost half a billion euro in school infrastructure.”
