To ask the Minister for Education and Skills the position regarding the rebuilding of a school (details supplied) County Dublin; if he is committed to this project; if there is a timeframe in place; and if he will make a statement on the matter.
(St Oliver Plunkett’s NS, Malahide)

Answer: Minister Ruairí Quinn, Minister for Education and Skills
The project referred to by the Deputy is currently at an early stage of Architectural Planning. It forms part of the 2011 Building Programme, which was announced in January, of projects to progress to secure planning permission with a view to preparing tender documents in 2011 or 2012.

The Design Team are currently working on finalising the Stage 2a submission (Develop Sketch Design) which is expected to be submitted to my Department shortly. When this is received it will be reviewed by my Department and my officials will then contact the school regarding the further progression of the project.
