Written answers (Question to Education)

I wish to advise the Deputy that my Department remains committed to providing permanent accommodation for the first named school to which he refers. It is my Department's intention that the school in question will relocate to the premises currently occupied by the second named school pending the construction of a new school for the latter. The building project for this school is at an advanced stage of architectural planning, Stage 2(b). All statutory applications have been granted and the design team are in the process of completing stage 2(b) tender documentation. Once the stage 2(b) tender documentation is submitted by the school and reviewed by my Department and subject to no issues arising, the project will then progress to tender and construction stages. My Department has no record of receiving any application for capital works from the third school referred to in the Deputy's question.
