Education | Three-school project in Co Kildare updates

To ask the Minister for Education the progress to date in relation to the three-school project at Hazelhatch, Celbridge, County Kildare incorporating a replacement school (details supplied) which is now an urgent requirement and two other schools on a single site; if all the necessary road and realignment works have been completed by the local authority to facilitate this progress; when construction work will start in respect of each of the schools; and if she will make a statement on the matter.

(Details Supplied) Raphael’s replacement school

The project to which the Deputy refers has been devolved to the National Development Finance Agency (NDFA) for delivery as part of a programme of school building projects.
A letter was issued by the Department to the schools earlier this year to advise that their respective school had been included in the programme. The NDFA has since been in contact with each school to introduce the team, communicate arrangements and discuss the project briefs.
The next step is for the NDFA to procure a Design Team for the project bundle to progress the projects through the design stages.  An estimated timeline for the completion of the project will be available once the design stages have concluded.
