The major project at the school referred to by the Deputy is at Stage 1 of Architectural planning which entails preliminary examination of site and location suitability and initial Sketch scheme.

A revised Stage 1 submission, including an up to date cost plan, was requested from the Design

Team following an increase in the schedule of accommodation to cater for up to 1200 pupils. That submission is currently being reviewed by my Department.

My Department will shortly be in contact with the school authorities to update them on the outcome of that review. This project is included on the Department’s six year school building program to commence Construction in 2019 – 21.
