I am pleased to inform the Deputy that funding was approved under my Department's Additional Accommodation Scheme 2019 to enable the school in question to build one mainstream classroom, one WC for assisted users, five SET rooms and one Principal's office.

I can confirm that the project has been devolved for delivery to the School Authority and is currently at design stage. My Department recently agreed the professional fees for this project and it is now a matter for the Board of Management to advance it.
