“Every primary school in Tipperary with permanent recognition will receive a small amount of funding to carry out small capital or improvement works to the school, with payments issuing to schools next week.
“This funding will help schools make improvements to their school buildings and grounds, and invest in their furniture, and IT and sport equipment.
“Each school will receive a payment of €5,500 per school, and a further €18.50 per mainstream pupil, or €74 per pupil with special needs. The grant is worth €6,425 for a 50 pupil school and more than €11,000 for a 300 pupil school.
“I know from speaking to parents and principals that every investment we make in school buildings and equipment is money well spent, and today’s announcement by Minister Jan O’Sullivan is no different.
“Labour is continuing to invest to improve educational infrastructure in local communities.”
