The PTP committee met last night to discuss the communications from the KWETB and the Board regarding our new school building being used to accommodate the 1st year students of the new secondary school due to open its doors in September 2020.
We have had much feedback from you in the 24 hours since receiving this news. We are currently working on a response and a strategy on how best to move forward while being a representative voice for the parents of GCNS and supporting the staff. We will provide you with details of our plans by Monday next week as we are currently liaising with the school.
The PTP is reaching out to the KWETB to arrange a meeting, we will inform you of the logistics once confirmed.
We are also making initial contact with our local elected officials and the Department of Education and Skills to express our thoughts on this decision and how it has been made.
We appreciate that a lot of parents are angry and scared of what this means for our wonderful school. However, GCNS is more than just a building. We might only be in situ less than 5 years but we have built up a wonderful community of parents who are so supportive of their school and their child’s teachers. We have a principal who always puts our children and their needs first. Lets work together to protect the reputation of this wonderful community school that goes above and beyond to ensure our children have a wonderful educational experience every day.
We will be asking for your input, should you wish to provide it, in our next communication on Monday.
On behalf of the PTP Committee
