A major building project for the school referred to by the deputy is included in my Department's Construction Programme funded by the National Development Plan.

As the design team for this project is no longer available to carry on with the project, the Department will run a tender competition on the school’s behalf to appoint a new Design Team using the Department’s Framework for Consultant Appointments. The school will be involved in the assessment of tenders and the Department will notify the school in due course when their input is required.

The Department has assured the school community it is giving this matter its full attention and will keep the school community updated in respect of their major building project.
