Corofin primary school gets more money for energy efficiency refit

St. Coleman’s National School Cummer Corofin has been allocated additional funding for replacing the school’s windows to increase its energy efficiency.

Galway East TD Seán Canney said that he has been informed by the Department of Education that more money has been granted as replacing the windows at the school has proved to be more complex than first anticipated.

“I welcome the fact that the funding has been granted to replace single glazed windows in the school,” Sean Canney said.

He added that when these works are complete St. Colman’s NS will enjoy “better energy efficiency and the classrooms will be warmer for the students.”

The Independent TD thanked the staff, board of management, and parents at St. Colman’s who have worked to “ensure that Cummer NS is maintained to the highest standards the children deserve”.
