Letters: When did schools start delegating STEM Education to Trade Unions and Football Clubs

Letters: When did schools start delegating STEM Education to Trade Unions and Football Clubs

STEM education (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) was traditionally the Job of Schools and their Teachers to impart such Education to Children . Now it appears , some Schools are using the services of Trade Unions and Football Clubs . A number of Schools in Clondalkin and Tallaght have signed up to a Unite Trade Union initiative in conjunction with Shamrock Rovers whereby activists from Unite will educate children on these subjects using their own methods . The launch of the programme took place on Tuesday with Schools such as St. Thomas’s NS in Tallaght , St. Bernadette’s NS in Clondalkin and Divine Mercy Balgaddy already

Letters : New Fine Gael Bill to ditch Men from directorship roles

A new Fine Gael Bill entitled the "corporate governance bill 2021" will force Companies to select directors based on their gender rather than the person's skills , abilities , merits and qualifications . Under the new Bill , 40% of people recruited for Directorships must be selected on the basis that they are female even if others so happen to be more qualified for the role . Announcing her Bill on social media , Fine Gael TD Emer Hiiggins (Dublin Mid West) says : Take a second to imagine a boardroom today in Ireland . Chances are you've thought of a lot of Men sitting around a table

Should Wealthy areas of Dublin take their fair share of refugees and asylum seekers

Should Wealthy areas of Dublin take their fair share of refugees and asylum seekers

With the recent announcement by Government that it will take in hundreds of Afghan migrants under the Irish Refugee Protection Programme , cancel deportation orders on failed Afghan Asylum Seekers here and prioritise family reunification and Visas for Afghans , I ask the question , is it only fair that wealthy areas of Dublin take in their fair share . If the intention is to move these people into the poorer areas of Dublin where people are already struggling with homelessness and housing shortages , cant get their children into local schools because of overcrowding and large class sizes, and are struggling to find employment due to job

Chairman of Catholic School forced to resign over pro life leaflets
Eddie Shaw , Chairman of Harold Primary School in Dún Laoghaire in Dublin , a Catholic school founded by the sisters of mercy , was forced to resign after he sent home some leaflets advertising a Pro Life Event .

Leaflet sent home to parents



Following complaints by a small number of parents , the School issued a letter of apology to all parents who felt upset at the leaflet . 

Below , Letter of Apology from School Principal to Parents  


  

Some parents were
 still not happy and Mr Shaw was subsequently forced to resign his position as chairman of the Catholic School .
 

after careful consultation and reflection, submitted my resignation as Chairman of the Board of the Harold School with immediate effect.

I want to repeat my unreserved apology to teachers and parents for the deep distress and understandable upset caused by my action. The responsibility for this action was mine, and mine alone.

I have been involved in the school in a personal and voluntary capacity for the last 30 years and have always had the best interests of the school at heart.

Is the world just full of crybabies.Mr Shaw probably should have known, there would be a big fuss.Catholic schools are no longer what we think they are.If you want to know who is in charge, look at who you can't criticise.Unfortunately too many parents would rather discuss the X Factor,they haven't a clue that their country is going down the jacks.Mention your concerns about immigration to Politicians, school,church etc. and watch the jaws drop.I think the penny is starting to drop a little though,more people on the street are talking about real issues a bit more.My butcher is right up on all this,I would vote for him over the Liberal brigade any day.

clearly , the man was wronged . 

he should be re-instated asap 

the parents who complained should realise that they signed their child up for this when they enrolled in a catholic ethos school , why should everybody else have to change and be disrupted because of a small number of whingers . 
^
Cultural Marxism . 

I bet the same parents would have no issues whatsoever if it were an advert for Dublin Pride . am I right  ?

its sad that no parents came out to defend him , because I bet there was a lot of parents who had no problem with the leaflets and probably even went to the event themselves.

If these people in labour like communism so much why dont they go live in North Korea ?? why do they want to bring north korea to Ireland . the first thing to go in a communist regime is your ability to change your government , the next is your right to disagree with them , the next is your standard of living , everyone ends up in poverty while their government get rich
