Mr. N. O’Keeffe asked the Minister for Education and Science the position regarding the building of a new school (details supplied) in County Cork; and if her attention has been drawn to the urgency regarding this project in view of the substantial increase in housing developments in the area and the expected increase in pupil enrolment numbers.

Ms Hanafin Ms Hanafin
Ms Hanafin: I wish to inform the Deputy that contracts have been signed for the acquisition of a school site in the area referred to, for the provision of a new school building. The long-term projected staffing on which the long-term accommodation needs of the school will be based has recently been finalised and notified to the school authority. The next step in the process is the appointment of a design team to carry out the architectural planning of the project.
The Deputy will be aware that I have made a number of announcements already this year in relation to the School Building Programme 2006. I will be making further announcements in this regard over the coming months. The building project for the school in question will be considered in this regard.
