A building project for the school referred to by the Deputy is included in my Department’s Construction Programme which is being delivered under the National Development Plan.

A tender exercise to establish a Project Manager framework was concluded on 10th April 2019. A tender competition to the newly established framework to appoint a Project Manager for the programme through which this project is being delivered will conclude shortly.

A project brief has been finalised and the scope of this project is to provide a stand-alone extension to the existing post primary school in order to increase capacity of the school to a long term projected enrolment of 850 pupils.
