OUR LADY’S ABBEY NATIONAL SCHOOL ADARE TO RECEIVE PERMANENT ACCOMMODATION AS PART OF THE €15 MILLION PREFAB REPLACEMENT SCHEME IN 2013/2014- NEVILLE

“I have been informed by Ruairi Quinn, T.D., Minister for Education and Skills that Our Lady’s Abbey National School, Adare is to get permanent accommodation as part of the €15 million Prefab Replacement Scheme in 2013/14”

“€15 million has been allocated in 2013/2014 to replace prefabs and provide permanent resource rooms and classrooms for some 2,650 students. 46 schools with 115 prefab units will be offered grants to provide the new facilities”

“This follows on from the success of the 2012 Scheme which provided funding for the replacement of over 458 prefab units. The Prefab Replacement Initiative last year has been a great success, with over €23.6 million spent to date, 30 projects completed and a further 100 projects on site”

“Replacing prefabs offers better accommodation for students and savings for schools and the Exchequer, as well as providing construction jobs”

“The government are clearly delivering upon our Programme for Government commitment to reduce reliance on rented prefabs in schools”

“Savings of almost €5 million per annum on prefab rental will be achieved under the previous initiative, with a further savings of some €2 million from today’s announcement. Today’s announcement will also result in the creation of an estimated 300 direct and 60 indirect jobs.”
