Written answers (Question to Education)

I wish to advise the Deputy that my Department has no record of receiving an application, for capital funding, under the Additional School Accommodation Scheme (ASA).

It is open to the school to apply under this scheme where an immediate enrolment need has been identified or where an additional teacher has been appointed. The application form for this scheme is available on my Department's website www.education.ie

I also wish to advise the Deputy that a new 600 LTPE Post-Primary School opened in September 2019 to cater for the Drogheda/ Laytown area.
