This is the response to the Dail question that my colleague, Catherine Martin TD, submitted to the Minister for Education on my behalf regarding the withdrawal of funding for St. Mochta’s NS.
As you can see, at this stage the Minister has not reversed his decision. The Chair of the school board and the principal are meeting with the Minister next Thursday (29th). Hopefully at that stage, the Minister will have reconsidered.
There will be a public meeting in the school that evening, which I will be attending. I would encourage all concerned members of the St Mochta’s NS / Clonsilla community to attend.
