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 is aware, the project to provide permanent accommodation for the school in question is included on my Department's Capital Programme.
Officials in my Department continue to liaise with officials in Fingal County Council under the Memorandum of Understanding in relation to the identification and acquisition of a suitable site for this school. A preferred site option to accommodate the school in question has been identified and agreement in principle for its proposed acquisition has been reached with the relevant landowner.
My Department will keep the school patron appraised of progress in this regard.
