The provision of a permanent site for a school, Malahide/Portmarnock Educate Together National School
To ask the Minister for Education and Skills the status of the provision of a permanent site for a school (details supplied); and if he will make a statement on the matter. (Details Supplied) Malahide/Portmarnock Educate Together National School
As the Deputy may be aware, a project to provide permanent accommodation for the school in question is included on my Department's Capital Programme.
Officials in my Department are liaising with officials in the relevant local authority in accordance with the Memorandum of Understanding in relation to the identification and acquisition of a suitable site for this school. This process has proven to be quite challenging given the scarcity of suitable sites and in that context has taken some time to date. However, I would like to assure the Deputy that all parties are working to progress matters as expeditiously as possible.
