East Belfast Alliance MP Naomi Long and local Councillor Judith Cochrane have welcomed the announcement of school building projects at Lagan College and Tor Bank School. A £31m contract has been signed for new and upgraded buildings at the schools.
Naomi Long MP said: “This is very good news for both schools. Tor Bank has been operating from mobile classrooms for a significant period of time and improved facilities were simply vital. We hope that this news means that Tor Bank will soon have facilities and buildings to match the excellent work that is undertaken there.”
Local Councillor Judith Cochrane said: “This is a long overdue and very welcome announcement for Tor Bank. The school has endured particularly difficult conditions as regards their buildings for far too long, and I am very pleased at this news.”
