As the Deputy will be aware, a project for a new building for the school to which the Deputy refers is included in the five-year construction programme that I announced last March. It is my Department's intention that this project will proceed to construction in the period 2015-16. My Department has sought the assistance of, and is working closely with, the relevant Local Authority in relation to identifying and acquiring a suitable site for the proposed school concerned. Due to commercial sensitivities attaching to site acquisitions generally, I am not in a position to comment further at this time. The current status of all projects on the school building programme, including the school in question, may be viewed on my Department's website,
