Written answers (Question to Education)

As the Deputy is aware, a major building project for the school referred to by the Deputy is included in my Department's 6 Year Construction Programme. The project is currently at Stage 2(b) of the architectural planning process and planning permission has been secured. The next step includes securing Fire and Disability Access Certification and this process is in train.

My Department recently met with school representatives relating to the school's location and agreed to continue to liaise with the school authority in this regard.
