MORE THAN £200,000 of investment in school buildings across Dundee could be approved by councillors next week.
If agreed the programme of on-going maintenance and improvement will cover nine schools and be carried out by Dundee City Council’s construction service division.
Lynne Short convener of the council’s city development committee said: “Looking after the bricks and mortar of our school buildings is an on-going and important task because we’re talking about facilities that need regular care and maintenance. These tenders will see all sorts of work done from roof refurbishment and window replacement to playground resurfacing and new play equipment.”
Stewart Hunter children and families service committee convener added: “Our learning and teaching environments must be the best that we can offer and this investment will ensure that pupils and staff at the schools that feature in the programme have the best facilities possible.”
Covering internal and external works at primary and secondary schools the tenders will be discussed by the city development committee on Monday (March 11).
