Fine Gael TD for Dublin Fingal, Alan Farrell is pleased that Scoil Moibhi in Skerries has received funding from the Department of Education and Skills for 1 mainstream classroom and 1 learning support room.
“I am pleased that the Department of Education and Skills is providing funding to Scoil Moibhi for additional accommodation in the form of 1 mainstream classroom and 1 learning support room. The provision of additional classrooms, and facilities such as learning support rooms, is of the utmost importance to equip schools with the resources necessary to ensure our children get the greatest possible benefit from education.
“The allocation of funding to schools for additional classrooms is vital to make sure that, when our children are at school, they are in an environment which is conducive to their learning. With the youngest population in the State, Dublin Fingal is home to a large number of families with children in full-time education. As many parents will be aware, a number of schools throughout the North County are currently facing a capacity crisis and tackling this issue must be a priority for the Department of Education and Skills. I will continue to support all schools in Dublin Fingal in relation to their future development.”
The amount of funding sanctioned has not been released by the Department of Education and Skills as the publication of the amount of grant aid could prejudice the tendering process.
