“Funding of more than €40 million for Summer Works projects in 2019 will see major improvements in primary and post-primary schools across the country,” says Minister for Education and Skills, Joe McHugh T.D.

Mary Newman Julian welcomed the investment which secures money for schools to upgrade windows, meet curricular requirements and make structural improvements to buildings which will be carried out in schools mainly over the summer months, so the disruption to students, teachers and other staff will be kept to a minimum. A key component of the summer works scheme is the capacity of schools to take responsibility for delivering small and medium-scale projects.

“The €40 million Summer Works Scheme demonstrates that the Government is continuing to prioritise capital funding for school buildings which will enhance the learning and working environment for pupils and teachers. The new Summer Works Scheme will open for applications in early 2019 for projects to be delivered from summer 2020.”
