ADMISSIONS BILL AND EDUCATION FUNDING

To all parents and guardians…

You may not be aware how recent education funding policy has disadvantaged your child and how a government proposal to change school Admissions policy will deny parents the opportunity to send their children to a school of their ethos choice.

This is of vital importance to all families, past, present and future of Sligo Grammar School.  I would ask you to please read the attached documents and make contact with all elected representatives and other persons who can influence change to Government thinking.
