Message from PSA re Fee Paying Schools

As you know, the Government has in recent years implemented a programme of cuts to fee-charging schools in the form of an increase in the pupil teacher ratio from 19:1 to 23:1.

The key focus on this issue for Budget 2015 is to seek a reduction in the pupil teacher ratio in fee-charging schools to 21:1 from the current unsustainable rate of 23:1.

We feel there is a critical opportunity for parents and teachers to influence their representatives, and inform those who may not currently understand the challenges our schools are facing. 
Accordingly, attached is a letter from the Principal and the PSA which we would like you to read. 
We urge you to visit the dedicated website at www.fairfunding.ie   and take a minute or two to send an email to your local politicians flagging this as an issue of importance for you.

Thank you for your support in this issue.
