Written answers (Question to Education)

The school referred to by the Deputy was approved a grant under my Department’s Additional Accommodation Scheme. The school subsequently sought additional funding to complete the project and this was approved.

The school has now submitted a further request for additional funding and have been requested to submit supporting documentation. As soon as this information is received their application will be considered and the school authority informed of the outcome.

In addition, my Department approved grant-aid to the school for works under my Department’s Emergency Works Scheme. The project has been devolved to the Board of Management for delivery and my Department has now given approval to the school to commence the works in question.
