To ask the Minister for Education and Skills the steps he is taking to address the capacity issue at a school (details supplied); and if he will make a statement on the matter.
I wish to advise the Deputy that a project for the school in question is included on my Department’s 6 Year Construction Programme. Officials from my Department have been in contact with the Patron of the school in order to progress the project.
I also wish to advise the Deputy that acquisition of a site at Loughshinny to facilitate the new school building is currently advancing. Department officials are working to complete this acquisition at the earliest possible date.
