Mass Postal Protest

Dear Parent,

The omission last week of Gaelscoil Philib Barún from the Department of Education and Skills’ five-year primary school building programme is unacceptable. The Parent’s Association of Gaelscoil Philib Barún is therefore launching a mass postal protest campaign this week. We need your help in order for this campaign to be successful.

On Wednesday, 21 March 2012, each child will bring home five identical letters and five envelopes. We would like everyone in your household (children and adults) to sign a copy of these letters, adding your address to each copy, and return them to the school in the envelopes provided. Feel free to have extended family, friends and neighbours sign additional copies also. If you have stamps to hand please use them, but if not the Parent’s Association will stamp the letters on your behalf.

Please aim to returned the signed letters to the school by Friday, 23rd March 2012.

Our aim is to deliver 1,000 letters to the Minister of Education next Monday expressing our outrage. The department is obliged to respond to each of these letters.
