Petition to Ambassador of India in Qatar, Secretary/Jointsecretary MEA India, Undersecretary MEA India
Need admissions for our kids in IDEAL, SHANTINIKETAN or MES QATAR Increase 10% seats.
We all were provided admissions in MES school Qatar. Fees were paid and were informed to purchase uniforms and books. Now due to unknown reasons we have been informed to visit the school and refund our money and take the kids. 700+ students have been affected of which 400+ are sitting at home without a school to go. Classes have started from 1st April'19. Reason for not going to school are 1. Admissions have closed and classes have started for the academic year 2019-20 in most of the schools affordable to an average salaried parent.2. Most of the schools do not have classes after 6th grade and some do not have classes from 1st grade3. A few schools which have admissions charge high fees than the normal Schools. A parent who has more than a single kid would have to pay double or triple this fee.4. These parents are not paid educational allowances and hence they have to bear all expenses on their own.5. Some of these parents have lost their jobs and some have lost their educational allowance which forces them to look into schools with lower fees.
Petition to CRDP, Lebanese Ministry of Education
تعديل مادة التربية الوطنية و الجغرافيا لتتماشى مع تطورات اليوم
نرى أن أغلبية الطلاب في لبنان يعانون من عدة مشاكل في مادتي الجغرافيا و التربية و خصوصا مع توارد أحاديث تقول بزيادة معايير التثقيل على كلا المادتين و ذلك بسبب قدم المناهج و تناقضها مع وقائع اليوم لذلك نطالب المركز التربوي للبحوث والإنماء و وزارة التربية إعادة النظر في القرارات المتعلقة بهاتين المادتين و العما على تطوير مناهحها أولا على أن يتم العمل على تطوير مناهج المواد الأخرى لاحقًا. و شكرًا We're not demanding to delete or remove the subjects, rather we're only demanding that they become updated to suit the new way of life in the 21st century and be informed accordingly. In geography we're demanding updates as the world map is very outdated and lacks many countries, and China isn't even an industrial power. We also want to change in civics so that they match the current situation more than teach us about the absolute code of ethics that doesn't exist and yes amend history and philosophy so that they fit the student more and learn stuff that will benefit him instead of having him memorize stuff that he will forget after the exam.

Free plastic recycling for schools #BeFantasticDontWastePlastic
Over the last half term, we have been learning about the catastrophic effects of plastic waste on the environment. After watching Theresa May's 25 Year Plan and BBC's Blue Planet, we were shocked to discover that millions of tonnes of plastic waste is being dumped in landfill sites and making its way into our oceans and onto our beautiful beaches, destroying habitats and harming animals. After investigation, we have found that as a school, we are contributing to this devastating, worldwide situation and as a result, we desperately want to change this. We are already spending a large proportion of the school's budget on recycling paper and we simply cannot afford the additional costs of plastic recycling too. We are all passionate about this! Household recycling is included in their council tax, whereas school recycling is NOT included in our business rates. We do not think this is right or fair! We challenge the government to allow schools to support 'The 25 Year Plan' and provide free recycling provision. Please sign our petition and help us make a difference. Thank You, Year 6 Graham James Primary Academy, Essex #PlasticFreeForCleanerSeas #BeFantasticDontWastePlastic #MakeItFreeSaveOurSeas #FreeRecyclingForSchools
Petition to PED Masvingo, Victoria High school -Shcool Development Committe Chairperson, The headmaster Mr Muzamani, Ministry of Primary and Secondary education in Zimbabwe
Bring back Victoria High school in Masvingo, Zimbabwe to its former glory!
We, the undersigned parents of the children of Victoria High School, past pupils and the community in Masvingo Province petition change at the school. Having been one of the top schools in the country, it is now well known that Victoria High School’s standards are fast going down and it has become a worry among parents with children at the school, community and past pupils who are wanting to bring their children for quality education. Your attention to this matter is important to not only the parents but also has a bearing on the entire future students and parents of Masvingo and beyond. Herewith the grievances that we have concerning the school:- 1. Poor pass rate at the school. 2. Management and delivery of lessons - indiscipline among teachers with some of them absconding lessons, some sell their wares and clothing during lesson time, poor and improper lesson delivery. 3. Bullying of children caused by too much power of control given to prefects. 4. Independent audit of school accounts. 5. Poor maintenance of school infrastructure and grounds whereby the buildings are so dilapidated and filthy as they are mostly unswept. For example the other block is now nicknamed jaradha which houses our children. 6. Squatting of Great Zimbabwe University students (GZU) in school hostels. 7. Illegal procurement and late delivery of school uniforms. 8. Administration workers do not cooperate with stakeholders (us parents) on the welfare of our children. 9. Inflated invoices for sports and school trips. 10. Poor security at school – no gates at Temple house and broken windows; some children even sneak out through broken windows at night for example the incident that happened on the night after they had come from Gokomere school for sports. We demand that School Authority restore and improve the standards of Victoria High School like before.
Petition to Hon Sue Ellery, Hon Fran Logan
Include Success in the Hammond Park Senior High School Local Intake Area
As per the recent announcement on the Hammond Park Secondary School - Planning Name Facebook Page - https://www.facebook.com/Hammond-Park-Secondary-School-Planning-Name-358742708047467 - The currently notified LIA (Local Intake Area) for the new Hammond Park Secondary School does not include the suburb of Success. The residents of Success (among others) have been waiting 2 decades for a new Secondary High School and all that first built here will remember that this was always part of the town planning messaging communicated to us then and over the last 20 years. It is with much dismay that Success has been excluded from the LIA especially given this new High School is being constructed less than 5kms from the farthest boundary of Success (as per the Metro South West Joint Development Assessment Panel Agenda commentary). And, even more so, on the western side of the Freeway meaning that our children can easily catch public transport, ride bikes or even walk to school encouraging safe travel from home to school and back again without having to traverse the Kwinana Freeway. If you are a resident of Success with Primary School aged children (or even if you aren't) and are not willing to be excluded from the LIA of the new Hammond Park Senior High School, please sign this petition so we can combine our efforts as a community and send a strong message of critical importance for the benefit of our community's children to the Hon. Sue Ellery, MLC and Minister for Education and Training. Your participation is greatly appreciated.
Petition to Thornleigh Salesian College, Ms. O' Callaghan, Ms. Burrowes
Thornleigh Salesian College - Phone Ban Dispute
The phone ban in Thornleigh Salesian College (TSC) has been a largely disliked policy that shall take effect on Monday, 1st July 2019. This new policy will prohibit the use of phones and their visibility whilst on school grounds - if this policy is broken, the phone is to be confiscated and a C4 consequence to be issued if this is refused. This is a vastly unjust and non beneficial change to school policy as without mobile phones, students will be unable to communicate with parents in times of emergency, seek assistance from others that they cannot contact in person, resolve problems or answer a question and much, much more. They believe that bullying shall decrease with this change, this however is most likely false. Bullying shall not decrease with the removal of phones whether it is online or not, this can still continue outside of school and the policy would inhibit the ability for the student to alert others of their status. If the bullying occurs within school it could be known about more easily hitherto if you are to force that to out of school time. Another one of their points were that sleep cycles/patterns would change if they continued to allow usage. This, again, is false due to the fact that they are only delaying something that it soon to be inevitable - due to the ban only restricting use during the school day it shall not affect these patterns as these downsides would only occur if the usage is in the period close to where you go to sleep. TSC mainly bases its homework system in an app named Show My Homework, this app would become redundant while in school due to the restriction of phone usage - therefore, many avoidable punishments could be issued if phones are to be banned. Their points and reasons behind the policy are laughably flawed, they did not conduct 'extensive research' and most probably did not give a second thought to the uproar it could cause along with the feeling of students and the consequences it should bring. The benefits far outweigh what they see as 'negative' but is truly propaganda in order to reduce the negative response they would receive by portraying what seemed to be 'credible' information. These are only a few of the points that were made and many more were false too. They speak of ‘freeing us’ from our phones, we think otherwise. Freedom is the right to being able to do what you desire - however, they are taking this freedom to do so away from us. Sign this petition to stop this change from happening, quickly! Do it before it’s too late!

Teaching diabetes in schools
When you hear the word 'DIABETES' what is it you think it is?Too much sugar?Too much weight?Not allowed ice-cream?Diabetes is so much more than that!It's an autoimmune disease, that has no cure and no cause! It's a full time job, it's complicated and it's deadly! Just because you can't see it, it doesn't mean it's not a struggle! So many people everywhere in the world are suffering, but so many more have no idea about it! In todays life ambulance services are not always able to get to emergencies on time! Here in the UK many cuts are being made. Think about the lives you could save by allowing this disease be tought in our schools! Diabetes is a ticking time bomb, when it's bad it's bad...this doesn't mean the person who has it hasn't looked after themselves, many things like stress, the weather and even activities can cause it to be problematic! Did you know this? Because I'm pretty sure you didn't! Even if the basic knowledge like how to treat a hypo and the symptoms to look for can be tought, thats a huge difference made, and a life saved. please guys get this message heard, get this message out there, allow the future generation be in the know, it prepares them, it helps understanding, it makes them a hero!!Imagine a group of friends out for the day, one of those friends are a type one diabetic! They unfortunately suffer a hypoglycemic episode because it's such a hot day! The friends are to far to find help of someone who would know what to do, an ambulance would take its time... If just one friend knows what to do that's a life saved! And another life saved for the person who really needed that ambulance should it been called. Please sign my petition and have this be part of education.
