Written answers (Question to Minister for Education and Skills)

I can confirm that in response to Parliamentary Question No. 154 of the 10th of July last, the position is as was stated, that my Department had not received an application for funding under the Emergency Work Scheme.

The school authorities have however been in contact with my Department regarding funding for refurbishment works to an adjacent building which the school authority has recently acquired.

My Department is considering the school's request and my Officials have been in recent contact with the Principal in this regard. A decision will be conveyed to the school authorities as soon as the matter has been considered.
