Written answers (Question to Education)

My Department is in receipt of an application for additional accommodation from the patron of the school referred to by the Deputy. The application is being considered in the context of current and future demographic demand in the area and my Department will be in contact with the patron in this regard shortly.

In the meantime, my Department has approved additional temporary accommodation consisting of 8 general classrooms and 1 science lab to meet the school’s immediate needs.
