Education (Amendment) Bill 2010: Second Stage (Resumed)
Brian Hayes (Dublin South West, Fine Gael)
If one examines the recent innovations on sports provision facilities one will find it is where the VECs do get it right. They sweat the asset. When a new sports facility is established if it is a VEC school, as is the case in my constituency, it operates from 7 a.m. until 10 p.m. That is not the case in many other schools in the country where when the doors closed at 4 p.m. and 5 p.m. the community are not allowed in.
