I wish to inform the Deputy that my Department approved significant funding in 2017, under the Additional School Accommodation Scheme (ASA), to the school in question. This funding was to provide an extension comprising of a two classroom ASD Unit.

My Department considers that there is sufficient accommodation already available to meet the school's long-term projected enrolments.

The Per Cent for Art Scheme does not apply to projects funded under the ASA scheme.
