Written answers (Question to Education)

The project to which the Deputy refers has been devolved for delivery to Kildare and Wicklow Education and Training Board (KWETB).

I can confirm that a design team to deliver this project has been appointed by the ETB. KWETB has informed the Department that the design team is preparing the Stage 1 report (preliminary design) and it is nearing completion.

While at this early stage it is not possible to provide a timeline for completion of the project, KWETB will be engaging directly with the school authority to keep it informed of progress.
