Minister for Education Joe McHugh is to brief the Cabinet this morning on the ongoing school structural defects issue, as more than 1,000 children in west Dublin remain out of school.
Cabinet to be briefed on school structural defects
Mr McHugh will later update the Oireachtas Joint Committee on Education and the matter is also likely to be raised in the Dáil.
Two of the three schools worst affected by the controversy plan to reopen fully to pupils on Thursday, accommodating some pupils in borrowed buildings.
A third school, Tyrrelstown Educate Together, has yet to make a decision.
The school said on its website yesterday evening that while work to stabilise the structure had been completed, management was not yet satisfied that the work carried out had left the interior safe for children.
RTÉ News has seen the interior of the school, a significant section of which has been lined with obtrusive scaffolding and rough planks, in order to bolster defective walls.
The school said the Department of Education was working to address its list of concerns over the next few days.
It said it would reassess the situation and make a decision after that work had been completed.
