From the Board of Management - Educate Together News

An EGM of Educate Together was held on 23rd January to consider its financial situation as a deficit of approximately €168,000 was forecast for the year 2016. A motion was carried by a large majority that:

  • All member schools make a voluntary contribution of €1,000 (or more, if possible);
  • All members support the lobbying of general election candidates to put in place appropriate funding for a national network of Educate Together schools;
  • All members support enhanced fundraising efforts.

To address concerns expressed at the EGM regarding long-term financial stability, the Board of Educate Together undertook to present a detailed plan for sustainability at the next AGM on 21st May.

Educate Together have set up a special website for the General Election, It’s very helpful and well worth a look.

Remember to question election candidates calling to your door. You should already have a handy canvass card which has been provided to families in the school today, setting out 4 commitments that the Educate Together movement is seeking.
