Written answers (Question to Education)

The acquisition process of a suitable permanent site for the new post primary school to serve the Ballinteer/Stepaside area is currently underway. Due to commercial sensitivities I am not in a position to provide any further details at this time.

In the interim, officials in my Department are working on the provision of suitable temporary accommodation for this school.
