162. To ask the Minister for Education and Skills the status of a school (details supplied); if progress has been made in securing a greenfield or brownfield site for a permanent building; the timeframe envisaged for the delivery of a new school for pupils who are currently educated in prefabs; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

I wish to advise the Deputy that the school in question submitted an application for major capital funding to my Department to construct a new school building on a green field site.

Given the need to meet demographic growth, the delivery of new schools, together with extension projects identified by my Department's school building programme to be delivered as part of the National Development Plan, will remain the focus of my Department's budget for the coming years. My Department is not in a position, at this point, to indicate when a permanent building will be provided for the school referred to by the Deputy.
