  • Promote Inclusivity and End Discrimination in Education
    This is very important as in education, in Ireland many students have witnessed quite a lot discrimination from teachers and students out of ignorance or due to their lack of understanding of different cultures. For example during my secondary education, teachers would often discourage students of an immigrant background from doing higher level subjects because they believed that these students were not capable of doing as well as their Irish classmates, therefore limiting their capacity of achieving greatness due to their ethnicity. This had an effect on countless students leading their self confidence to decrease which had a detrimental effect on their mental health and their academic performance. Students are often very uneducated about racial issues and discrimination. As a result of this they can be quite insensitive towards students who are different. This is a very important issue that needs a lot of attention to be able to stop it.

  • Keep Michael in Ireland - from Carlow College, St. Patrick's
    Michael has been resident in Ireland for five years. In those years he has consistently striven towards completing his education, entirely on the merit of his own hard work. Never once has he claimed assistance from the state, and has worked for the entirety of his time in Ireland. The grounds for his deportation were the result of failing to produce documents confirming his attendance at Carlow College; this was an impossibility for the simple reason that his acceptance had yet to be confirmed. Michael intends to use his degree in Social Political and Community studies to become a community worker, allowing him to better serve in whatever community he comes to reside. Upon achieving his degree, he intends to return to his native Malawi, having completed his education without any financial assistance from the Irish state. The situation in which he finds himself could befall anybody in similar circumstances, and the ends to which intends to turn his degree are supremely noble. By allowing him to complete his degree we are helping Michael to help others. The students stand with Michael. Carlow College stands with Michael. We need you to stand with Michael too. #CarlowWithMichael

  • Gorey Central School’s pupil enrollment into Gorey Community School
    Recent changes to Gorey Community School (GCS) enrolment policy mean that we at Gorey Central School have gone from a priority feeder school since our inception to one of 16 schools in a lottery. The ratified changes will come into effect for enrollment from September 2019. When parents chose Gorey Central School many did so on the understanding they were prioritized for enrollment in Gorey Community School. We are currently second in proximity to Gorey Community school and now our families face the real possibility they may have to look outside Gorey town for a place in a secondary School. We have always held strong links with Gorey Community School and feel our history, proximity and pre-existing links should be respected and honored. We wish for you to show your support for the children and families enrolled Gorey Central School currently and for generations to come.

  • TJ Fighting for Special Needs Education
    My 14 year old son, TJ, has autism. He's been without education, a school place or respite for over a year, which is simply unacceptable. They claim that every child deserves education but unfortunately, that doesn't seem to apply to special needs children. My son is not the only special needs child without a school place, there are many whose needs are also being ignored. The Department of Education does not check on the special needs children without a school place. Every child, including those with special needs, deserves a right to education. Something needs to be done and together, a great change can be achieved. Let's be their voice. Please sign this petition to help bring about the change. Thank you.

  • Clean up the site of the derelict houses at Palmer Avenue, Rush
    These houses are in shameful condition and this is now Health and Safety concern to the whole community. The derelict houses are being are attracting anti social behaviour and locals are afraid to let their children play in the Park. It is just a matter of time that something more serious or life-threatening will happen. Not to mention that these are about 200 meters from a local Primary School thus school children walking through the Park to and from school are in danger of being mistreated. It is high time this issue to be taken seriously.
