Lunn welcomes capital investment in schools

Alliance Education spokesperson Trevor Lunn MLA has welcomed the £173 million funding for capital investment in 18 schools announced by the Education Minister today. But he has expressed his disappointment that there were no integrated schools in the list.

Trevor Lunn MLA said: “In all of the schools that have received funding, there is a very clear need for a serous amount of capital investment, especially where if no investment was made then a large amount of money would have to be spent on temporary maintenance.

“Having visited several of these schools I have seen for myself the desperate need for funding such as at Dromore Central Primary School and Bunscoil Bheann Mhadagain in Belfast.

“While welcoming this list today, I can however easily identity another 18 schools that are also in need of serious investment. I know there are several integrated schools that require investment and I am disappointed that none of them were included in the list announced today by the Education Minister.”
