The Drogheda Educate Together Parents Building Committee has cautiously welcomed talks between the Department of Education and Skills and the Educate Together National Office which took place on Friday night. The meeting was attended by a large majority of parents, the committee has asked that these talks be resolved quickly to protect the mental health of the children, parents and school staff during this extremely difficult schooling period with the added anxiety of Covid 19.  

 

The Parent's Building Committee welcomes the fact that the Educate Together National Office has shared the School Board of Managements "significant concerns" with the Department on Friday and that they expect to engage further in the coming weeks to ensure a "suitable ... solution". We ask that the Board of Management and Educate Together National Office liaise and work with us the parents to ensure this process is concluded quickly to alleviate all children's and parents anxiety and uncertainty. Whilst doing so we reiterate that under no circumstances will our children relocate to a distant, traffic congested, over crowded school playing fields on the far side of Drogheda. We also ask that the Board of Management join us in publicly rejecting this relocation. 

 

Over 3,500 members of our local community have singed our petition to have the decision to temporarily relocate our school reversed . One parent commented: "I have signed this because my daughter has ASD and this change will have a massive negative impact on her education.
