High Schools

Monday 19 March 2018

Responding to my question in Parliament, the Minister for Education discussed the challenges with finding land for a school in the east, however he stopped short of committing to finding a site, referring instead to new capacity at Alexandria and Cleveland Street schools as solutions.

I welcome his acknowledgement of the CLOSEast campaign, which is continuing to show the need. I worked with the group to get the Cleveland Street high school and will continue to support the campaign for a school in the east. My question is HERE and follow up questions HERE.

The Department of Planning has approved the Cleveland Street high school. There will be a 13 storey building for 1,200 students: HERE.
