Concern over former St Joseph's Primary School site

Back in October 2012, St Joseph's Primary School moved from its old building (pictured right) to the new West End Campus and ownership transferred to the Al-Maktoum Foundation.

The building has since remained unoccupied and over time the playground has become overgrown with also some repairs required - see below :

Following concerns raised by residents about its deteriorating state, I have spoken with the Director of Operations at the Al-Maktoum College of Higher Education who has assured me that the long-term future of the building is being actively considered.

Meantime, it has has been agreed that a tidy-up of the site will take place, which is welcome.
