I wish to confirm that an application from the school referred to by the Deputy, in respect of a change of status from a junior mixed/senior girls school to fully vertical co-educational school, was received earlier this month, by my Department. The application in question is currently being considered and further information is required from the Patron. In that regard, my Department intends to contact the Patron directly in the coming days.
