Schools Building Projects
Question 111: To ask the TÃ¡naiste and Minister for Education and Skills in view of the announcement that a school (details supplied) in County Waterford has been approved to design stage, when it is expected it will proceed to tender and completion; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [4558/11]
I am pleased to advise the Deputy that a project to provide a new school building for the school to which he refers has been announced as one of the projects to commence the process of appointing a design team under my Department's 2011 Multi-annual School Building and Modernisation Programme.
My officials will be in further contact with the school authority in due course relating to the steps to be taken to progress the project. It is not possible, at this early stage in the process, to indicate when the project will proceed to tender and completion.
