Written answers (Question to Education)

I wish to advise the Deputy that my Department is in receipt of an application for major capital works from the Post Primary school referred to.

In this regard, my Department is currently reviewing the demographic demand in the area serviced by the schools referred to.  As the Deputy may be aware my Department's main responsibility is to ensure that schools in an area can, between them, cater for all pupils seeking places. Once this review is completed my Department will be in contact with the school.
