Written answers (Question to Education)

The school to which the Deputy refers has applied to my Department for capital funding for the provision of a sport hall.

Given the current financial constraints within which my Department is operating, the position is that priority is being given to school applications for essential mainstream classroom accommodation. In this regard, the delivery of new schools, together with extension projects to meet the demographic demand, will be the main focus for capital investment in schools in the coming years. It is not possible, therefore, at this time to indicate when a project for the school in question will be progressed.
