As the Deputy is aware, a building project for the school to which he refers is included in my Department’s School Building Programme to be delivered under the National Development Plan (NDP).

I can confirm that the acquisition of a site to provide permanent accommodation for the school is currently at an advanced stage of conveyance.  In tandem with this, my Department has undertaken a  visit to the site in the context of the preparatory work required to advance the project. My Department will continue to liaise directly with the school authorities regarding the next steps to be taken to advance the project.
