Cork North West TD Michael Creed has welcomed the allocation of an extra €130,585 by the Department of Education to Scoil Naomh Mhuire, Farran, Co. Cork. Commenting on the allocation Deputy Creed said:
“I am pleased that the Department of Education has made this significant extra allocation to Scoil Naomh Mhuire to support and facilitate the construction of classrooms for the provision of special classes as sanctioned by the National Council for Special Education. Other works include the construction of a water treatment system, significant additional ground works, a link corridor between the existing building and new extension, works to increase the size of the Principals office, staff accessible WC and soft play area.
“This allocation brings to €466,463 the total investment being made by the Department in the school. I would like to commend the Principal, the staff, the board of management and the parents of Scoil Naomh Mhuire for their commitment to this project. Developments on the scale of the expansion in Scoil Naomh Muire require meticulous planning and hard work to bring to fruition.
“Spending in Education has been a key priority for this Government and I am extremely gratified as a local TD, that during our most difficult economic period in the history of the State, that there has been record levels of investment in our schools locally”.
