ALEX EASTON MLA MEETS EDUCATION MINISTER TO DISCUSS THE NEW BUILD FOR BANGOR CENTRAL INTEGRATED PRIMARY SCHOOL.

Alex Easton MLA and the Headmaster of Bangor Central Integrated Primary School Mr Campbell have met with the Education Minister to discuss the new build for Bangor Central Integrated Primary School.

Speaking today Alex Easton MLA said:

“Mr Campbell and I met the Education Minister on Wednesday to discuss the proposed new build for Bangor Central Integrated Primary School. At the meeting the Education Minister confirmed there was funding definitely available through the Fresh Start Agreement to fund a new school build which would cost in the region of around seven million pounds. The Minister also confirmed that a Project Board would be set up in and around September time to take forward proposals and prepare a business case. There was also an approximate time scale given where a new school build could be opened within five years subject to everything going according to plan. The meeting was very positive and I would thank the Education Minister and the Principal, Mr Campbell, for attending the meeting, on what will be an exciting time for the future of Bangor Central Integrated Primary School.”
