Kelly welcomes news that SNA’s will be maintained at Scoil Mhuire

Sinn Féin Cllr Anthony Kelly has welcomed the news that the SNA allocation for Scoil Mhuire in Wexford town is to be maintained for the next term. Cllr Kelly, who has actively supported the campaign to against cuts to special needs assistants, commended the parents of special needs children attending the school for their courage, commitment and sheer determination to give their children the constitutional right to have access to a proper and equal education.

Cllr Kelly said;
“I tabled a motion at the May meeting of Wexford Borough Council calling on Minister Quinn not to allow the recent funding review to effect the S.N.As allocation at Scoile Mhuire (Wexford) and St Senans (Enniscorthy). The motion was supported unanimously.”

“Although the special needs children may have already had their future compromised by previous cuts, at least the government have maintained the present services for the immediate future.”

“Minister Quinn recently stated that the NCSE has advised the Department that it is in the process of reviewing and developing an appeals process for schools which will be in place for the 2012/13 school year allocation process. Sinn Fein is calling on the Minister to include parents in this revised process. It is only right and proper that they should have an input into something which will impact on their children’s future.”
