  127.  Mr. Connaughton  Information on Paul Connaughton  Zoom on Paul Connaughton   asked the Minister for Education and Science  Information on Mary Hanafin  Zoom on Mary Hanafin   if, as a matter of urgency, an application by a school (details supplied) in County Galway for grant aid to build two extra classrooms and a learning support and general practitioner room will be approved; if her attention has been drawn to the fact that the number of pupils attending the school is increasing quite dramatically and that an additional teacher will be employed in 2005; if her attention has been further drawn to the gross overcrowding at the school, that there are already two prefab [558]classrooms and that an additional prefab would not be practicable or desirable; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [24758/04]

Minister for Education and Science (Ms Hanafin): Information on Mary Hanafin  Zoom on Mary Hanafin  An application for grant aid towards additional accommodation has been received from the management authority of the school to which the Deputy refers. My officials are nearing completion of a review of all projects which did not proceed to construction as part of the 2004 school building programme with a view to including them as part of a multi-annual programme from 2005. The needs of the school referred to are being considered as part of this review.

I expect to provide details of this multi-annual programme before the end of the current year.
