To ask the Minister for Education and Skills the status of the provision of a new secondary school for the Malahide and Portmarnock areas of County Dublin as announced in November 2015; if he has identified locations for these proposed schools; and if he will make a statement on the matter.
As the Deputy may be aware, the building project for the new post-primary school to serve the Malahide and Portmarnock school planning areas is included in my Department’s current 6 year construction programme. My Department is working towards the acquisition of a suitable site to provide the permanent location for this school and I can assure the Deputy that this acquisition is a priority for my Department.
The school will open as scheduled in September 2017 in suitable interim accommodation pending completion of construction.
