I can confirm to the Deputy that my officials have identified a number of potential site options for the school to which he refers. These are currently under consideration.

While a site acquisition process is underway, given the commercial sensitivities associated with land acquisitions generally I am not in a position to comment further at this time. However, I can assure the Deputy that Department officials are working to progress matters as quickly as possible so that the school's permanent location can be confirmed at the earliest possible date.
