I propose to take Questions Nos. 247 and 251 together.
A new school building for the school referred to by the Deputy is included in my Department's six year Construction Programme.
Officials in my Department are working in relation to the acquisition of a suitable site for the new school. A potential site option has been identified and discussions, including technical considerations are ongoing with the owner with a view to acquiring this site. Due to the sensitive nature of site acquisitions generally, it is not possible to comment further at this stage.
I can confirm also that my Department has received an application from the school for additional temporary accommodation, to cater for the school's interim accommodation needs. This application has been assessed and my Department has approved in principle the provision of temporary accommodation at the school. My Department is currently awaiting further information from the school to finalise the approval of this temporary accommodation.
