Written Answers. - County Limerick School.

Michael Finucane


62 Mr. Finucane asked the Minister for Education if her attention has been drawn to the fact that a classroom aide is required for a school (details supplied) in County Limerick in view of the fact that there is a child who is physically handicapped in the school; and if she will make a statement of the matter detailing the assistance, if any, her Department will provide. [8183/95]

I recently announced that I intend to allocate an additional 100 child care assistant posts in 1995, to assist school teaching staff in dealing with pupils with special needs. My Department is currently assessing needs in this area to ensure that the posts in question are allocated to best effect.

The needs of the school referred to by the Deputy will be fully considered in the context of this allocation.
