04 November, 2018 – DES Update on WBS Building Issues

5th November 2018 | News, What's New



The Department of Education and Skills has been advised that the implementation of precautionary measures at a total of 22 school buildings remains on schedule for completion this evening.

Five teams involving over 250 workers have been on site through the weekend to facilitate the reopening of schools.

The implementation of these measures follows the programme of structural assessments conducted on schools constructed by Western Building Systems.  The table beneath sets out the list of schools at which external and/or internal precautionary measures were required.

School principals are being kept fully informed of progress and receive written confirmation as the works are completed.

Arrangements at individual school level are being communicated by the school authorities directly to parents.
