SPERRINVIEW Special School in Dungannon will benefit from almost £260,000 investment in the coming months.

Education Minister John O’Dowd said: “My Department has agreed investment of nearly £260,000 for the provision of modular accommodation at the school.

“A total of 82 minor works projects amounting to over £6 million were agreed in July across all board areas. 13 projects are in the Southern Education and Library Board (SELB) area, amounting to almost £1.9million.”

Minor works cost less than £500,000 and range from minor repair to more significant projects.

Mr O’Dowd added: “I am confident that the substantial investment in minor works projects will continue to help in the drive to improve educational standards in addition to providing a boost to the local construction industry. The completion of all of these works will ultimately provide better facilities for our children and young people to learn in and an improved working environment for teachers and other school staff.”
