SAVE OUR SCHOOL CAMPAIGN
CITY-WIDE SIT IN PROTEST
FRIDAY 10TH MARCH 2006
I am sending out this e-mail to ask for your support in the City-Wide Sit In protest. So far, 3 seperate schools are taking part. Carnwadric, Pollok and Bargeddie. Would be great if many more schools could join us to make this a huge success!
It is vital that we keep our campaign 'visible'. I know we are all doing our own thing seperately, petitions, letter writing, rallies etcetera, but we have to keep the publicity around our campaign alive. I know for sure Laura Coventry at the E.T would be extremely interested in writing something that is happening at the same time, city-wide.
BBC Radio Scotland also contacted me today about maybe doing a programme about the campaign in their Action Scotland programme. I contacted Action Scotland weeks ago and now they have got in touch, and seem interested in what we are doing. Will let you know how this goes.
If you need to contact me with questions about having a sit in, and how exactly you go about doing such a thing, you can call me on 0792 114 8219. Alternatively, put your questions on the blog!
Thanks, and remember UNITED WE STAND. DIVIDED WE FALL! (I know it's a total cleche, but it's true!) : 0 )

There is a public meeting to be held on the evening of Monday 24th at Hyndland Primary where representatives from Glasgow Council will try to explain the consultation on the merger of catchment areas of Dowanhill Primary and Hyndland Primary. If you have an interest in the developemnt of the new school at Gibson Street or Hyndland Primary it might be worth coming along to the meeting.
