Written answers (Question to Education)

The school building project referred to by the Deputy is being delivered under my Department’s Design and Build Programme.

A tender process is ongoing for the establishment of a new framework of contractors for delivery of a bundle of design and build projects which is expected to be completed in Quarter 1 of 2021. It is expected that in Quarter 2 of 2021, this school building project will be included in a subsequent bundle of projects to be tendered to the new framework.

Pending delivery of the permanent building project, my Department will continue to address the interim accommodation needs of the school on its permanent site.
