Sinn Féin’s Ciara Ferguson has welcomed ‘huge investment’ in two Derry schools following an announcement by the Education Minister on Monday.
St. Brigid’s College and Lumen Christi College will receive millions of pounds to modernise the schools.
Around 28 schools across the North of Ireland will benefit from a £798 million capital investments programme.
Said the Foyle MLA: “This is great news for St Brigid’s and Lumen Christi colleges as we have secured confirmation from the Education Minister that they will be included in major investment plans to redevelop and modernise the school.
“They are both first-class schools at the heart of our community with thousands of pupils – this investment can help ensure they have access to the very best facilities and opportunities in life.
“Sinn Féin will continue to hold the education minister’s feet to the fire to ensure that these schools receive this funding as a priority, and that other schools in Derry are also invested in.”
