Loreto College in Coleraine has been included within the list of schools to advance in planning for Major Capital Works.
Education Minister Michelle McIlveen earlier today made a statement to the Northern Ireland Assembly announcing 28 schools were to advance in planning under the Major Capital Works Programme.
She said that the schools were to benefit from a capital investment in the region of £794m, with deliverability subject to the level of capital resources available to the Department towards the end of this decade and into the next.
Sinn Féin MLA Caoimhe Archibald has welcomed investment in Loreto College Coleraine.
The East Derry MLA said:
“This is a great day for Loreto college as we have secured confirmation from the education minister that they will be included in investment plans to redevelop and modernise the school.
“Loreto is a first-class school at the heart of our community with nearly 1000 pupils - this investment can help ensure they have access to the very best facilities and opportunities in life.
“Sinn Féin will continue to hold the education minister’s feet to the fire to ensure that schools receive this funding as a priority, and that other schools in the area are also invested in.”
