I propose to take Questions Nos. 485 and 486 together.
Discussions are ongoing among the parties concerned to agree the structure of the amalgamation of the schools to which the Deputy refers. A technical inspection of the buildings concerned was recently carried out to determine the scope of works required to facilitate the amalgamation and to accommodate another school in one of the buildings which will be vacated post amalgamation. Following this inspection, the Department appointed an architect directly to carry out the refurbishment works required. This will include implementation of appropriate security measures. The Department will be liaising with the school authorities concerned to advance the projects as quickly as possible.
