The major building project for the school referred to by the Deputy has recently completed Stage 2(b) of architectural planning and has been progressed to tender stage.

The Department has recently been in contact with the Design Team and advised it of the need to get the tendering process underway as quickly as possible.

A tender stage normally takes between 7 and 8 months to complete.
