Share this article


The Government has announced the allocation of grants for schools providing new Leaving Certificate subjects.

From September 40 secondary schools around the country will offer Computer Science, while 64 will offer Physical Education as subjects.

More than a dozen Dublin schools will offer each of the two new subjects.

€450,000 is being provided to the schools involved in the first phase of the roll out of the new Leaving Certificate subjects in September.

PE funding will go towards the cost of digital devices for students to complete course assessment components.

The grants for the schools offering Computer Science will go towards the purchase of connector devices.

Minister for Education Richard Bruton says he wants to make sure the education system keeps pace with the changing society and economic needs of the country.
