Written answers (Question to Education)

The major project for the construction of the new school building for the school referred to by the Deputy is at an advanced stage of the tender process. My Department is currently awaiting a Tender Report from the school and its Design Team, which is due to be submitted before the end of this month.

Subject to no issues arising, it is envisaged that construction should commence late this year with a contract duration of approximately 32 months.
