I wish to advise the Deputy that a technical assessment of this school building has been carried out by my Department’s architectural staff. This school has certain constraints in terms of the fact that it has a protected structure and associated conservation issues. My Department will continue to liaise with the school authorities in the context of progressing this project to the next stage of the architectural planning process.

In the meantime, my Department has approved emergency funding for works to the old school building.
