Local MLA Robin Swann has challenged Sinn Fein schools minister John O’Dowd to overturn any decision to close Ballee High School.
Responding during Question Time at Stormont, Mr O’Dowd said: “Consultation on the development proposal for that school has ended. My officials will receive the information from the Board and collate all the information that we have gathered in relation to Ballee. At a future stage, I will make a decision on the future of that school.”
He added: “I have to say that I was impressed with the views expressed and the plans brought forward by the board of governors. I have had two meetings with representatives of the board of governors.”
