St John’s Primary School is set to benefit from £128,500 investment under the Department of Education’s minor works scheme.

Speaking about the investment, Education Minister John O’Dowd said: “During December, £128,500 was allocated to St John’s Primary School for improved internal and external security works.

“This ongoing investment in the schools estate continues to have a positive impact on pupils, teachers and school staff and provides a much needed boost to the construction industry.”

Minor works are projects less than £500,000 and range from minor repair work to more significant projects and extensions.

In conclusion the Minister said: “I am confident that the investment in minor works projects will help in the drive to improve educational standards. The completion 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.”
