The school to which the Deputy refers submitted an application for funding under my Department's Emergency Works Scheme to carry out works to the school building.  Additional information has been requested from the school authority in respect of this application. When this information is submitted, the request for funding will be assessed and a final decision will issue directly to the school authority thereafter.

My Department has also received an application for additional accommodation from the school referred to by the Deputy. The application is being considered and my Department has been in contact with the patron in this regard.
