Scoile Mhuire in Milford has been approved under the Department of Education’s Additional Accommodation Scheme 2021 for much-needed improvement Funding.
The additional accommodation approved includes two mainstream classrooms en-suite (Prefab Replacement) and two 15m² SET Rooms.
Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine and Donegal TD, Charlie McConalogue, welcomed the announcement.
He said “My government colleagues Senator Niall Blaney, Deputy Joe McHugh and I worked with the dedicated Scoil Mhuire team to help find a solution to the needs of the school and local community. This announcement is a step in the right direction and will help the school team access much-needed funding.”
“I commend the hard work and dedication of the school board, principal, parents and teachers in working to improve their school and I will continue to work with the school to seek further funding. I thank Minister Foley for her efforts in supporting the school too.”
Senator Blaney said “This is very deserved for Milford National School. The staff have given the people of Milford and the wider catchment area great service with limited resources on a limited site. I hope that this gets the school through the next few years in the hope of getting better facilities into the future.”
