Dáil Eireann Debate
249. Deputy Bernard J. Durkan asked the Minister for Education and Science the position on foot of the reply to Parliamentary Question No. 256 of 21 May 2008 in respect of a school (details supplied) in County Kildare; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [12696/09]
Minister for Education and Science (Deputy Batt O’Keeffe): The Deputy will be aware that the school to which he refers was included in my announcement on 12th February of forty three major school building projects which are to progress to tender and construction this year. The project involves the construction of a new 16 classroom school.
I am pleased be able to inform the Deputy that planning permission was granted for the project by Kildare County Council earlier this month. In addition, representatives from the board of management and the schools design team attended a briefing in my Department’s offices in Tullamore on the 19th March at which they were appraised of the next steps necessary to progress this project to tender and construction.
