Killyman Primary School will benefit from an almost £150,000 investment in the coming months from the Department of Education’s minor works scheme.
Speaking about the funding announcement, Education Minister John O’Dowd said: “During January, my Department agreed investment of nearly £150,000 for the extension and refurbishment of the school administration area.
“Work includes the provision of a new main entrance and adjoining general office and Principal’s office.”
A total of 92 minor works projects amounting to £9.5million were agreed in January across all board areas. 35 of these projects are in the Southern Education and Library Board (SELB) area, totalling almost £4.5million.
Minor works are schemes ranging from minor repair to more significant work projects and extensions.
“This ongoing investment in the schools estate continues to have a positive impact on pupils, teachers and school staff and provides a much needed boost to the construction industry”, said the minister.
“I am confident that the substantial investment in minor works projects will help in the drive to improve educational standards. 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.”
