Written answers (Question to Education)

I wish to advise the Deputy that my Department's capital investment programme provides for devolved funding for additional classrooms for existing schools where an immediate enrolment need has been identified. All school capital projects that have been approved, by my Department, under the Additional Accommodation Scheme, may be viewed on my Department’s website, www.education.ie, which is updated regularly.

In this regard, I wish to advise the Deputy that my Department has not received an application, for such funding, from the school in question.
