Education Minister John O’Dowd has opened a new ICT unit at St Joseph’s Primary School, Killeenan in Cookstown.

An investment of £70,000 from the Department of Education as well as fundraising organised through the Parent Fundraising Group has enabled the construction of additional office space, an ICT unit and a medical room.

The Minister viewed the new facilities at the school and paid tribute to pupils, staff and parents. He said:

“It is always special for me as Education Minister to have the opportunity to attend the opening of any new facilities.

“The new office and ICT area are excellent facilities which will benefit the children during their journey in formal education. I am very pleased that I was able to provide an investment of £70,000 for the school. There are other minor works underway also which will enhance the fabric of the school.

“St Joseph’s Primary School has been delivering good quality education to the young people of Cookstown for many years. These new and upgraded areas in the school will help continue this good work.”
