Minister for Education and Skills, Jan O’Sullivan has announced yesterday a new programme of capital investment in schools.

Running from 2016 to 2021 this significant investment will provide funding for 310 major school projects, resulting in an additional 62,000 permanent school places.

The plan will also eliminate the need for any school to use pre-fabs as a long-term accommodation solution. It includes :

-10 extension/refurbishment projects in existing schools for the period 2016 – 2021 (156 at primary level and 124 at post-primary and 30 in special schools)

-14 new schools in areas with very strong demographic demand (10 post-primary and 4 primary)

Together these projects will provide 19,000 new primary schools places and 43,000 new post-primary places.

Speaking at the launch Minister O’Sulllivan explained :

“Over the next six years we will invest approximately €2.8bn in providing high-quality school accommodation throughout the country. This is a very tangible sign of this Government’s commitment to educational investment.”
