Dáil Éireann Debate
135. Deputy Niall Collins asked the Minister for Education and Skills the position regarding the trustee position of a school (details supplied); the long-term plan for this school; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [6566/11]
Further to that meeting the Trustees wrote to the Department to advise that, having assessed all options open to them, the current Trustees of the school will not be in a position to continue in trusteeship after 2012.
They also informed my Department that all options with regard to this school have been fully examined and it was confirmed by the Trustees that the school will close in 2012. The Trustees have been keeping the parents/guardians of pupils in the school up to date and they were informed last year of the decision to close in order to allow them to make alternative arrangements.
The Department has acknowledged the Trustees’ position and confirmed that the Department will continue to support the school with the current level of ongoing repairs/maintenance up to the time of the school’s closure.
