The major building project for the school referred to by the Deputy is at an advanced stage of Architectural Planning – Stage 2b (Detailed Design) which includes the application for statutory approvals and the preparation of tender documents. 

A brief change request relating mainly to structural and foundation works for the new building was reviewed and approved by the Department in December 2018.  

The Stage 2(b) report incorporating the approved brief change has recently been received for review in my Department.

Upon review my Department will be in contact with the school regarding the further progression of this project.
