Addressing Issues with “Free School Meals” Applications

Dear Parents

I wish to advise you that the processing of free school meals applications within the Education Authority is proving to be a very slow and cumbersome process for many.

It is imperative for the school and for you that this situation is resolved immediately. Both School’s funding and Parents’ entitlement to free school meals are being compromised.

At this point I would advise any of you who are experiencing difficulties to make contact with your elected representatives to encourage a speedy resolution to this situation.

Elected Representatives for the Slieve Gullion area are listed below with contact details

Thank you,

PMcDonnell (Principal)
