Dublin West TD and Minister for Social Protection Leo Varadkar has welcomed the announcement that St. Mochtas NS has been given the go-ahead to proceed to tender for their new school.
Once complete, St. Mochtas will have 4,791 sq metres of new accommodation and a 32 classroom school.
The announcement was made by Minister for Education & Skills Richard Bruton.
The school is being contacted directly by the Department of Education’s School Building Unit with details on the projects and the funding amount awarded.
Minister Varadkar said: “I am delighted that the Department of Education & Skills has been able to allocate funding to allow St. Mochtas to go to tender. This has been a long journey for those involved and I wish them every success with their build. Fine Gael in Government is determined to ensure that our recovering economy can benefit everyone in society. Our children should be number one on this priority list and it is really important that they can learn in a safe and modern environment.”
