Grianghraf ón Irish Times

Tá sár-obair ar bun ag pobal Scoil Santain i dTamhlacht le tamaill anuas agus iad i mbun tréan-stocaireachta in aghaidh na ciorruithe oideachais a chosnóidh go daor ar an scoil agus ar scoileanna eile ar fud na tíre. Tá gach eolas maidir leis an bhfeachtas ar fáil ag na naisc thíos:

Ráiteas ón ngrúpa:

The Scoil Santain Parents (SOS) (Save our Schools) Action Group was set up as a result of Minister Ruairí Quinn’s decision to make cuts to the DEIS Schools in Ireland. If DEIS cuts were implemented, this would have an adverse effect on the positive teaching of our children, and undo all the good work achieved under the DEIS status of our school. This would put immense pressure on the teachers resulting in bigger class sizes, and a heavy financial burden on parents/guardians to make up the short fall in funding to compensate for loss of services to our school.

Although there are signs that our campaign has softened Minister Ruairí Quinn’s stance on these cuts, we need to ensure this is the case. Until we are guaranteed DEIS Status, our campaign must continue. Remember this is our right under our Constitution, not a concession that can be taken away.

Mise le meas,
