The Deputy will be aware that a building project for the schools to which he refers is included in my Department's 6 Year Construction Programme.

My Department is currently finalising the project brief and in this regard has recently written to the school authority seeking clarification in relation to certain associated matters.

My Department is aware that both schools have agreed to amalgamate with the consent of the schools Patron.
