Written answers (Question to Education)

The major school building project for the extension and refurbishment of the schools referred to by the Deputy has recently been authorized by my Department to proceed to tender for the appointment of a Building Contractor.

The closing date for receipt of tenders is early January 2020. Subject to no significant issues arise during the tender process, my Department anticipates that the joint project will commence on site in the second quarter of 2020.
