Alex Easton MLA has today called on the Minister for Education to address the need for a new build for St Colombanus College more seriously.

Speaking today Alex Easton said.

“I am today calling on the Minister for Education to take the need for a new build for St Columbanus more seriously! The school is now quite old and much of its infrastructure is now old and in need of repair. The reality is that that in the long term it will cost less to build a new school than to keep pouring money into crumbling infrastructure. With the size of the school which attracts pupils from right across the religious divide it is important that we address the needs of the pupils, parents and teacher alike and move this project on to the next level. I will be raising this issue at the NI Assembly and will be putting down a series of written questions and hopefully an adjournment debate to discuss the issue.”
