Speaking about the investment, Education Minister John O’Dowd said: “During the period December 2014 to February 2015 a total of 565 minor works projects amounting to nearly £40million were agreed across all areas. This investment will enable improvements to be carried out across the schools estate, positively impacting on pupils, teachers and school staff.”

Minor works are projects ranging from minor repair to more significant work projects and extensions. Investment since December includes over £708,000 to rewire Knocknagoney Primary School and provide new play equipment; £124,000 for electrical work and traffic solution at Hazelwood Integrated Primary School; and £380,000 to rewire Our Lady of Lourdes Primary School.

In conclusion the Minister said: “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. This ongoing significant investment also provides a boost to our local construction industry, helping to sustain jobs.”
