New £3.5million sports hall for Integrated College Dungannon

Date published: 08 November 2017

A new state-of-the art sports hall and drama studio has been officially opened at the Integrated College in Dungannon.

The £3.5million investment in the school under the School Enhancement Programme includes a new 3G pitch which was opened last December as well as accommodation for Dance and Drama.

Permanent Secretary for the Department of Education, Derek Baker, who attended the opening said:

“It is clear from looking at these excellent new facilities that the School Enhancement Programme is having very real benefits on our schools estate, providing much needed facilities and creating a better place for pupils to learn and flourish in.

“I am confident that the £3.5M investment in the new sports hall and synthetic pitch will have a positive impact on pupils, teachers and schools staff for generations to come.”
