Strandtown Primary School North Rd, Belfast

Appeal for Voluntary Donations

11th Oct 2018

Dear Parents

Thank you to parents who have contributed to our school fund. The budget position of the school has been discussed with the Board of Governors and Parent Focus Group. We have endeavoured to be sensitive to finance pressures for families and not over emphasise our difficult financial position. However, our representative parents felt it timely to issue a reminder on the dire financial plight facing the school which remains unchanged for the foreseeable future. We have continued to meet with the Department of Education, Education Authority and politicians to campaign for more funding for Strandtown.

Last year parental contributions raised a wonderful £16,947, which directly impacted on all pupils learning experiences. This year we have only managed to raise £7,478. While we are enormously grateful to all those who have given, we would appreciate any further donations from parents.

Donations can be sent in a sealed envelope marked with your child’s name, room number, details of the contents and sent to the class teacher.

With thanks for your support.

Yours faithfully

V Hutchinson – Principal
