St. Teresa's Special School  (Save Our School)

We are asking Minister Joe McHugh TD and the Department of Education for additional resources to ensure St. Teresa’s Special School in Ballinasloe can remain open and meet the cost for this year’s insurance which is €26,317 and to ensure the future of St. Teresa’s Special School by bringing it under the State Claims Agency to resolve this issue and protect those most vulnerable in society. Our children and their education.

Why is this important?

This school provides so much more than just education and care for its 21 students, it gives those children a sense of independence and belonging. it’s also a growing school with an increase in students due next September
