SCHOOLS across Dundee are set for a facelift this summer if councillors back more than Β£400,000 of investment.

The city development committee is to be asked to approve Β£440,890 of work at six city schools with the tenders submitted by the council’s construction services division.

Lynne Short convener of the council’s city development committee said: β€œThis type of work is essential to make sure that our school buildings are in the best possible condition. It also ensures that we can maintain employment for the Dundee workforce.”

Stewart Hunter convener of the children and families committee added: β€œThe environment that our children learn in is a vital part of their development and continued investment in the school estate helps to keep pace with the needs of the curriculum.”

Work will include an upgrade of the infant toilets at St Pius PS, conversion of a biology lab to a computer suite and replacement of lighting at Craigie HS, replacement of fire doors at Ardler and Craigiebarns primary schools, refurbishment of the caretaker’s office at Dens Road and new roof coverings at SS Peter and Paul.

All of the work is expected to take place during the school summer holidays and be completed by August.

The city development committee meets on Monday (May 13).
