I have been informed by the Minister for Education that GRETB have now signed a service level agreement with the Department of Education to deliver the new amalgamated Primary School for Tuam

The Department have devolved the project to GRETB.

“The next step is for the GRETB to procure a Design Team for the project to design the buildings, obtain the necessary statutory planning permissions and progress the works to tender and construction stage.

I welcome this progress as the new school is a very necessary educational facility for primary education in Tuam.

The three existing national schools have amalgamed and are ready to move to a new modern fit for purpose facility.

I will continue to work with the Department and the schools to ensure that this project is delivered in the shortest time possible”.
