Thank you for your submission to the minister and providing such timely feedback, its really appreciated and I note your proposed question on the provision of a guarantee. If, however the minister cannot provide any guarantee that the school will be built this year, is it possible to find out what is being delivered by a ‘school building programme’? I’m intrigued by the ministers response referring to an ‘appropriate preparation schedule applicable’ … this project was ready for tender, no further preparation is required, there is nothing further for the minister to do accept provide approval ‘again’, this reply is without merit and lacks sufficient clarity.
My wife and I, the children and other parents and the teachers of the school need to understand what, if any, road map exists for projects proceeding to construction on this ‘school building programme’ . It would be helpful to understand what decision making & prioritisation is being applied by the minister and the department of education on this matter.
I believe that this project is worthy of the minister’s consideration considering all the delays and disappointment to date.
