The school referred to by the Deputy was approved to enter the Department’s pipeline of school buildings for a project to provide one mainstream classroom along with two SET Rooms plus Ancillary Accommodation.

A Stage 1/2a report was submitted in March 2024. The submission required clarification and additional information was requested from the school which has now been received. The report is currently being reviewed from both a technical and cost perspective in accordance with the requirements of the Public Spending Code. All projects, including this one, will undergo the necessary due diligence outlined in the Public Infrastructure Guidelines.

Upon completion of this review process my Department officials will communicate with the school authority regarding the next steps to advance this significant project.
