Feighan welcomes funding approval for ASD unit at Boyle Community College
Senator Frank Feighan has welcomed funding approval for a new Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) unit at the Abbey Community College in Boyle
“I am delighted that this funding has been approved by the Department of Education for this ASD unit which I have lobbied strongly for on behalf of the school.
“This announcement clearly demonstrates the Government’s commitment to supporting children with special educational needs.
“This funding allocation is great news for the Boyle secondary school and works will proceed once the tendering process has been completed.
“Projects such as these also help to stimulate economic activity by supporting jobs in the local economy.
“It is important to note that no details are given in relation to the amount of the grant-aid approved as the publication of the level of funding could prejudice the tendering process.
“The School Building Unit will issue a detailed letter informing the school of the amount of grant aid sanctioned by the Department.”
