Galligan says: “Overall, 1,083 pupils in seven schools across Donegal, including one in Ramelton, stand to benefit from this announcement.“The Summer Works scheme enables approved local schools to have essential works carried out such as electricity, gas and mechanical works carried out this summer.“This will generate work for local contractors, while also ensuring that school buildings are safer and more modern. An added benefit is that the works will be carried out over the school holidays, causing little disruption to pupils.“The next step in the process is that local schools must now invite tenders for the works. There I am encouraging local contractors to submit a tender soon so that the process can get underway as quickly as possible. “Minister Quinn allocated €36 million nationwide to the Summer Works scheme and will announce a second round funding in a matter of weeks.”SEVEN DONEGAL SCHOOLS TO BENEFIT FROM 2014 SUMMER WORKS SCHEME was last modified: March 19th, 2014 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Chris GalliganSmmer works schemelast_img read more
