I3 primary and 5 post primary schools in the county have been included in the schools summer works scheme. Under the scheme schools in Kerry will under go repair and upgrading of facilities at their building. The project is designed to fund small scale works deemed most in need of the resources. 442 school repair projects are to be carried out around the country under a 31 million euro summer works scheme from the Department of Education. Of this figure just 18 schools in Kerry are included.Overall the scheme is widely spread in Kerry, with post and primary schools from north, south, east and west of the county to under go repair during the summer.

It`s thought the scheme will go ahead with little or no interaction from the Government and allow schools to manage their individual projects.
