BREAKING NEWS WITH REGARDS TO GLASGOW CITY COUNCIL PRE-12 STRATEGY PROPOSAL.
It's Pauline Gilgallon here. I am just this minute off the phone with Susan Green from St. Edmunds in Pollok. Susan has just discovered that Ronnie O'Connor intends on moving the children from St. Edmunds in order NOT to build new houses, as was first thought, but actually to transfer a whole other school in Govan into the existing school building. A school for children who have been expelled from all other schools in Glasgow. This is written in the pre-12 strategy proposal! This is concrete proof, at last, that Ronnie O'Connor and his so called Consultation Process has been a sham from the very beginning. Susan intends to forward this information to the petitions committee at Holyrood as soon as possible. This cannot be ignored, and I feel will lead to the consultation process as a whole, being investigated thoroughly, possibly even being thrown out, which obviously will benefit every school in Glasgow.
Please, if you can, come along to meet with myself, Susan, and a few others from schools city-wide to discuss where we go from here, TOGETHER. We will be meeting at Greggs the bakers, George Square, at 10am on Monday (6th March)morning. From here we will go to a cafe or a pub, whatever, to finally get together and discuss the best way to carry on our protest as a group. There is so much going on for each of us individually, we need to meet and do this as one body, not scattered throughout the city. Strength in numbers!
Carnwadric parents have already raised enough money to hire a coach to take 50 people to Holyrood on the day the petitions committee meet. Let me know if you want to come along, and we will arrange to pick you up.
THIS CAMPAIGN IS GETTING STRONGER EVERY DAY. WE JUST NEED TO KEEP PUSHING FORWARD, AND WE WILL GROW STRONGER AS A GROUP REPRESENTING THE WHOLE CITY.
Bob, 9:51 AM
The parents of St Kevins Bargeddie support your fight.Keep it up,Good luck.
