The major building project for the school to which the Deputy refers is included in the Department’s Construction Programme which is being delivered under the National Development Plan.

The project is currently at an advanced stage of architectural planning, Stage 2(b) - Detailed Design, which includes the application for statutory approvals and the preparation of tender documents. All statutory approvals have been secured.

 The Stage 2(b) submission for this project was received by the Department in July 2020. 

Upon completion of the review of the Stage 2(b) submission, the Department will be in contact with the school regarding the further progression of this project, including the pre-qualification (shortlisting) of Contractors.
