School communities have done an exceptional job in adapting to the changes required to operate safely in a Covid-19 environment. A key priority is to continue to support and sustain the operation of schools in this context.

Deputy Dillon concluded “I am pleased that the Minister and the Department of Education have been able to provide this funding and to notify schools in this timely way. All schools approved for the 2021 Summer Works Scheme are being notified by the Department of the next steps involved in the delivery of their projects.”
