Department of Education and Skills
Schools Building Projects Status
219. To ask the Minister for Education and Skills the position regarding the possible delays to a school (details supplied) transferring to its new premises which is currently occupied by another school currently awaiting transfer to its own site; if the matter can be expedited in view of the severe disruption that delays will have in terms of the school not being in a position to transfer during the summer months; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [2965/20]
A major building project for the school referred to by the Deputy when complete will provide for a 24 classroom school and a 2 classroom SEN unit.
The project is being delivered through my Department's Design and Build Programme. It is anticipated that the school will decant during the summers months.
The school currently located in the building has received planning permission which will allow it move to an alternative location.
