Well, this is our new blog to fight for the future of the Gaer schools, but more importantly, for the GAER CHILDREN!
Please, join our campaign to show that the Gaer is a strong, united community with a wonderful history and an even brighter future.
I will be posting links to relevant documents online, as well as summaries of WHY we are against the Council’s proposal to close both schools, and merge them on the Junior site, freeing up the Infant building to become an ASD school for Newport children. Whilst we fully support the desire of Newport parents with children with ASD to have a specialist school for them, it should not be at the expense of other children’s education.
Newport City Council must drop this flawed and divisive plan immediately, and find a suitable site for the ASD school in Newport – even if that means finding the funds for a new build – in a way that does not significantly negatively impact the education of other children, as this proposal clearly does.
Gear up for the Gaer – and FIGHT for our community and our children’s educational future!
