The major school building project referred to by the Deputy 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.

A Brief Change requested by the school was approved by my Department in January 2019 and the Design Team is currently completing the Stage (b) report for submission to the Department for review and approval. Upon review my Department will be in contact with the school regarding the further progression of the project.
