Fine Gael TD for Meath East, Regina Doherty is pleased that funding for four new classrooms has been allocated by the Department of Education and Skills for St Colmcille's BNS in Kells.
“I am absolutely delighted that new funding has been allocated for four new mainstream classrooms in St Colmcille’s BNS in Kells. The last Census showed 21,000 more people living in County Meath. This increase in population is mirrored in the form of increased capacity pressures on our schools. It is critical that we continue to see investment in our educational infrastructure if we are cater for our growing population. “It is essential that our schools are adequately resourced and prepared to facilitate our growing population. We must continue to support our schools to ensure that our children receive the best education possible in an environment which is beneficial to their learning and development. “I will continue to work with all of our schools in Meath, and engage pro-actively with the Department of Education and Skills, with a view to making sure that our capacity issues are tackled as a matter of priority and that we continue to invest in our educational infrastructure.”
