The brief for the major building project for the school to which the Deputy refers is a new 16 classroom school on the existing school site.

The project is at an advanced stage of architectural planning Stage 2b (Detailed Design), which includes the application for statutory approvals and the preparation of tender documents. All statutory approvals have been secured.

The Stage 2b submission has been reviewed by my Department and the Board of Management has been advised of a timeframe for the progression of this project.
