TWO new schools are to be built in Co Derry with money provided under the Stormont House and Fresh Start agreements.
The funding, totalling £43m, will allow shared education campuses to be built Limavady as well as Moy and Ballycastle.
Existing integrated primary schools in Limavady, along with ones in Ballymena, and Ballynahinch will also get new buildings.
All of the projects had previously been announced and approved by the Department of Education but building on each site can now begin.
In the Stormont House Agreement the UK government agreed to provide £50m a year for shared and integrated school buildings.
Money will also be used to enable 17 other shared and integrated school building proposals to advance which will be confirmed at a later date.
Last week, Education Minister John O’Dowd announced a £40m capital investment for ten primary school builds.
