As the Deputy will be aware, a building project to provide permanent accommodation for the school in question is included in my Department’s 6 Year Construction Programme.

My Department has been working with the local authority to acquire the site on which the school is currently located. It is intended to progress the building project for the school into the architectural planning process shortly. In this regard, a schedule of accommodation and project brief is currently being finalised. 

My Department has met with the school authority to appraise them of the current position and my officials will continue to liaise directly with the school in the context of progressing the new school building project.
