Additional 11 South Tipperary School Building Projects get Funding under Jobs Initiative – Hayes

Eleven additional schools have been approved for Summer Works Scheme funding in South Tipperary under the Jobs Initiative launched last week.

“Eleven schools in South Tipperary were this week approved for funding under the Summer Works Scheme, as Part of the Fine Gael-Labour Jobs Initiative. I am very supportive of this funding which will go a long way towards making important improvements to our schools, while also creating jobs in South Tipperary this summer,” Tom Hayes T.D. said today.

“In total 21 schools in South Tipperary were successful this year, ten were approved a number of weeks ago, and the eleven additional schools were approved last week. The funding will go to improve primary and post primary schools around the country and the improvements make a huge difference to the schools. The projects include funding to replace old windows, change heating systems, improve access, refurbish toilets, among other projects. The works will make the schools safer, warmer and more energy efficient,” Tom Hayes continued.

“These funds will allow the schools in question to carry out small and medium scale building works.  These works will be carried out in these schools over the Summer months, when the pupils are on holidays, so the disruption to pupils and to the running of the school is minimised.

“The 21 South Tipperary Schools getting funding delivers on the commitment in the Programme for Government to advance shovel-ready projects, and reinforces our major focus on creating jobs,” Tom Hayes T.D. concluded.
