Alliance Councillor Peter Lavery is calling for urgent capital investment to be made at St Patrick’s Primary School in Aghagallon.
He has written to the Minister for Education and the Education Authority asking them to act urgently on capital investment to repair or replace the school’s three mobile classrooms which, he says, are more than 30 years old.
He said: “They are in a very poor condition after a number of decades of wear and tear. The door of the mobile toilet in particular is in urgent need of replacement.
“Pupils deserve to be able to study and learn together in facilities that are fit for purpose and that enable each one of them to develop to their full potential. “I will continue to lobby so that the learning needs of the pupils attending this school are met.”
