Written answers (Question to Education)

The project for Malahide/Portmarnock Educate Together Secondary School has been devolved to the patron body, Educate Together for delivery. 

The school will open in interim accommodation in September 2018 and my Department is advised by the Patron body that enrolments have been confirmed.

My Department understands that the patron body have identified a suitable interim location for the school and the patron body are currently in negotiations with the owners for a lease of this interim location; it is hoped this lease will be finalised shortly.
