Written answers (Question to Education)

The Deputy will be aware that a building project to provide a permanent school building for the school in question is included in my Department's 6-year Construction Programme.

A site is required for this purpose and the acquisition of a proposed site is currently at an advanced stage. In tandem with this, a schedule of accommodation for the proposed new school has been devised and shared with the school authority. My Department is seeking to advance the project into the architectural planning process and will be in contact with the school authority in this regard in due course.
