Lumen Christi College, Londonderry is set to benefit from over £15,000 investment under the Department of Education’s minor works programme.

Education Minister Peter Weir said: “Recently £15,174 capital funding has been approved for visual impairment works at Lumen Christi College.

“It is estimated that over £51million will have been invested in the minor works programme in the 2016/17 financial year.”

Minor works are projects less than £500,000 and range from minor improvements to more significant projects and extensions.

The Minister said: “I am confident that the investment in minor works projects will help in the drive to improve educational standards.

“The completion of the works will ultimately provide better facilities for our children and young people to learn in and an improved working environment for teachers and other school staff. This ongoing significant investment also provides a boost to our local construction industry, helping to sustain jobs.”
