Department of Education and Skills
522. To ask the Minister for Education and Skills the status of a school (details supplied) in County Wicklow, when the permanent site will be purchased; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [44914/15]
Officials in my Department have been working closely with Wicklow County Council in relation to the identification and acquisition of a site to accommodate both the school referred to by the Deputy as well as a Gaelcholáiste.
A site has been identified and the acquisition process is currently being progressed. Whilst I am aware that the school in question has raised some concerns about the site, my Department considers that a shared campus arrangement will benefit both schools and serve the entire community. It is my Department's intention to liaise with both schools in this regard in due course.
