To ask the Minister for Education and Skills if the works to provide a new school building for a school (details supplied) in County Dublin in addition to the associated refurbishment works will commence as a matter of priority; and if he will make a statement on the matter. (Details Supplied) St Molaga's National School, Balbriggan, Co Dublin
I wish to advise the Deputy that a project for St. Molaga’s National School is included in my Department's Capital Programme to primarily replace existing temporary accommodation with permanent accommodation. In that regard officials in my Department are currently preparing the project brief which will facilitate the progression of the project into Architectural Planning, which includes the appointment of a Design Team. In this context I can confirm that a meeting has been arranged with the school authorities for early February in relation to their project.
In the interim I am pleased to advise that my Department has approved additional temporary accommodation to meet the school’s immediate accommodation needs.
