I propose to take Questions Nos. 265 and 266 together.

The school building project to which the Deputy refers has been approved funding under my Department's Additional Accommodation Scheme to enable the school to build a two-classroom SEN Base. Approval to progress this project to Tender Stage issued in June 2021. The project has been devolved for delivery to Dublin and Dún Laoghaire Education & Training Board (DDLETB).

Furthermore, to meet the school's interim accommodation needs, rental for one temporary classroom was approved for September 2021. The Department has recently received tender documentation relating to this temporary classroom and has requested outstanding paperwork to be submitted from DDLETB.

Question No. 266 answered with Question No. 265.
