The board of management and, in particular, the parents who participate actively in the running and development of the school have convinced me that they have met all of the criteria. They are concerned that permanent recognition continues to be an issue. I ask the Minister of State to check the matter again because I understand the delay is being caused by a specific issue. While I do not expect him to do that today, perhaps he might do so when he returns to the Department of Education and Skills tomorrow. My understanding is that it is a question of a specific mannerism associated with the teaching methodology being used to teach a particular element of one subject. This issue should be resolved well in advance of the end of the current three year period for the sake of everyone involved.
