To ask the Minister for Education and Skills the position regarding progress on a new school building project for a school St. Joseph's Secondary School, Rush; and if he will make a statement on the matter.
The Deputy will be aware that a building project for the school to which he refers is included in my Department's School Building Programme to be delivered as part of the National Development Plan (NDP).
A new site is required to facilitate this development and my Department has recently reached agreement in principle with the landowners for the acquisition of a site. In tandem with the site acquisition, my Department will now initiate the preparation of the project brief. My Department will be in contact with the school authority when this process has been completed.
