Written answers (Question to Education)

I am pleased to inform the Deputy that funding has been approved for the provision of 7 general classrooms, 2 SET rooms, 1 Technical Graphics room, 2 Science laboratory with Preparation Area, 1 x Art/Crafts room and ancillary accommodation at the school to which the Deputy refers.

As the project has yet to proceed through the public procurement process, the value of the project is commercially sensitive.

It is not possible to provide a timeline for the project as the responsibility for delivery has been devolved to the School Authority and it is now a matter for the Board to advance the project.
