Written answers (Question to Education)

I am pleased to inform the Deputy that the school to which he refers was recently approved funding under my Department's Additional Accommodation Scheme for a stand-alone extension to its existing accommodation at the school. This extension will include two general classrooms and a science lab and science preparation area.

The project has been devolved for delivery to Cavan Monaghan Education and Training Board (CMETB). In that context, it is now a matter for CMETB to progress the project, reverting to the Department for approval at certain stages.
