868 thousand euro awarded to Louth schools

Both primary and secondary institutions set to benefit from new initiative

Grants totalling €868,306 will be made available to schools in Louth to develop information and communications technology, Peter Fitzpatrick has confirmed.

Individual payments will vary between €15,000 and €27,000 in the coming year, depending on the size and eligibility of each respective school. A total of 87 institutions within the county are set to benefit as a result.

The move comes as part of a nationwide investment of €30m across this sector in 2017.

Fitzpatrick, who is the Fine Gael TD for Louth, says it “sets out a clear vision from Fine Gael to realise the potential of digital technologies, to transform the learning experiences of students and to provide them with marketable digital skills."

At primary level, the initiative will be worth approximately €4,000 for 100-pupil schools, rising to €11,000 for those with 500 students or more.
