Written answers (Question to Education)

As the Deputy will be aware there is only one school in Straffan, Co. Kildare.

In March 2015, this school was approved a grant for the provision of 2 x 80m2 mainstream classrooms and 1 WC for assisted users. The funding was increased in September 2015 to provide a stairs and an additional WC for assisted users. A further 2 mainstream classrooms were approved in June 2017.

As this is a devolved project, it is now a matter for the school authority to progress the project.
