School improvements in pipeline
Councillors are to consider more than £1.1 million of improvements to school buildings in Dundee.
The council’s city development committee is being asked to approve tenders for work to five city schools which will be carried out during the summer holidays.
The authority’s contract services division is in line for the work to refurbish the roof at Clepington Primary School, upgrade a home economics classroom at Craigie High School and replace windows and door screens at Forthill Primary School.
The programme will also include an upgrade to toilets at Craigiebarns Primary School and replacement fire doors and a new swipe entry system at Eastern Primary School.
The city development committee will meet to discuss the matter on Monday.
Convener Lynne Short said the funding would help to ensure schools in the city are “fit for purpose” and providing the best facilities possible for pupils.
She said: “It’s no surprise that schools can have a pretty hard life and therefore need regular care and maintenance.
“These five tenders will see all sorts of work from roof refurbishment to an upgrade of home economics facilities.
“The quality of our learning and teaching environments must be fit for purpose and this investment will ensure that pupils and staff at these schools have the best facilities possible.”
