I am pleased to inform the Deputy that the school to which he refers received grant approval in June 2019 under the Department's Additional Accommodation Scheme. This approval was provided for the purposes of constructing a 2 x SEN base classroom (with total area including walls and circulation of 439m2).

The project has been devolved for delivery to the school authority so it is now a matter for the Board of Management to advance the project.
