Written answers (Question to Education)

I propose to take Questions Nos. 415, 417 and 418 together.

As the Deputy is aware, my Department's School Building Programme continues to address the challenges posed by the significant bulge in pupil enrolments going through our schools. This has seen a significant expansion in the rate of provision of new school places. The School Building Programme details the school projects that are being progressed through the architectural planning process, including those schools in County Kildare.

My Department has set out on its website at www.education.ie - Building Works, the current status of building projects and this is updated regularly.
