Written answers (Question to Education)

The major building project for the school referred to by the Deputy is at an advanced stage of Architectural Planning – Stage 2b (Detailed Design) which includes the application for statutory approvals and the preparation of tender documents. 

A brief change report in relation to movement of costs from Stage 2(a) to Stage 2(b) was approved by my Department in October 2019. A  revised Stage 2(b) report incorporating the approved brief change request has recently been received by the Department for review.

Upon review my Department will be in contact with the school regarding the further progression of this project.
