SDLP Councillor Angela Mulholland has welcomed the announcement that Dominican College, Portstewart has secured significant funding under the Department of Education’s School Enhancement Programme. The Programme is intended to provide for improvement, expansion or new accommodation for primary, secondary and special educational establishments and is valued between £500, 000 and £4 million.
Councillor Mulholland said:
“As a past pupil of Dominican College, I am particularly delighted to hear this exciting news. This will be a major financial boost for the college. Continued investment and enhancement of facilities in our schools is absolutely essential if we are to continue to support the high standards of teaching and learning.
This is good news for pupils, staff and the wider community. I wish them every success with their building project“.
I am aware that only a minority of schools who expressed interest this time has been successful in the application process and I would encourage those who have been less fortunate not to lose hope and to continue to fight for funding.”
