200. To ask the Minister for Education and Skills further to Topical Issue debate on 20 February 2024, when construction will commence on a new school building at a school in County Meath (details supplied); when the school will be notified with an update; and if she will make a statement on the matter.

The project brief for the large scale capital project, involves the construction of a new 16 classroom school, a GP Hall and classrooms for children with special educational needs.

My Department’s planning and building unit is currently assessing its work programme and priorities for 2024 in the context of overall requirements. The large scale capital project at Lismullen NS remains a priority for delivery, in line with the accommodation issues present at the school.

The project is at an advanced stage of Architectural Planning Stage 3 – Tender Action and Award. The next steps for the project will be the issuing of a Letter Of Intent, completion of the tender process and progression to Stage 4 – Construction.

I want to reassure the Lismullen school community that the school building project will be progressed and delivered. My Department will update the school authorities when there is a further update on the progression of the major project.
