12th March 2015

Dear Parents / Guardians

We have been informed that Trade Unions representing the Public Sector employees, including one teaching and other staff trade unions will be taking industrial action on Friday 13th March 2015.

In addition, public sector bodies including Translink are also intending to strike. With the level of disruption we anticipate, it is important to take necessary steps to ensure pupil well-being at all times.

The school will remain open as normal

Transportation to and from school will be the responsibility of the parents/guardians. If your child cannot attend school due to this industrial action they will be marked as present as usual.

Due to this action the school will close at 4:00pm sharp.

We take this opportunity to remind you that Aquinas Diocesan Grammar School is closed to pupils on Monday 16th and Tuesday 17th March 2015. I look forward to welcoming the pupils back on Wednesday 18th March 2015.

I thank you for your understanding in this matter and apologies for the inconvenience caused.

Yours faithfully

Mr Barry Kelly

Principal
