McCrea to press for Rainey new build

MID ULSTER DUP MLA Ian McCrea today said he would continue to press the Education Minister to approve “the much needed new build” for the Rainey Endowed School, Magherafelt.

Mr McCrea expressed his disappointment over the fact that the Rainey wasn’t on the list of schools for new builds that the Sinn Fein Minister announced yesterday. Speaking from Stormont Mr McCrea said: “Having raised the need for the new build at the Rainey Endowed in Magherafelt on a number of occasions with the Minister and his officials, I am disappointed but sadly not surprised that the Minister has failed to deliver.  

“When examining the list there is funding available for Irish schools which only service a small percentage of the population and I and many others feel that this capital spend would have been better spent on new builds for those which service the majority of the community and those that badly need new facilities.”
