So concerned by the lack of second-level options available to them next year, a sixth class pupil from Newbridge Educate Together school has written a letter to Minister Bruton.
Since our second meeting with the Minister & Deputy Jack Wall on January 28th, the campaign group have been awaiting a response from the Minister, as she had promised at the meeting.
At that meeting the Minister acknowledged our data, and promised us that she would respond (early the following week) that our data was being reviewed by the Department of Education & Skills.
Over the last 4 weeks, the campaign group have continued to request this response, both from the Minister’s office and from Deputy Jack Wall.
Finally, 4 weeks after that second meeting with the Minister, we have received the following letter today, 25th February.
The group welcomes the Minister’s acknowledgement of our valuable data and her request that the Department senior officials continue to expedite the analysis of our data, and that they have this completed as soon as possible.
The campaign group look forward to working with the newly elected TDs of Kildare South post the General Election 2016, to maintain the urgency of this situation for Kildare South, and to get the decision for a much needed new Second-level school to be made at the earliest opportunity.
We acknowledge the support of Jack Wall in following up on this matter.
