- Senator Sharon Keogan
Addressing class sizes during Covid pandemic.
I spoke to the Minister of Education today about Ardcath School. Thank you all for the letters I have received today and yesterday. I have listened, I have acted, I will keep pressing on the issue of oversized unmanageable class sizes in this pandemic. Please keep safe in the meantime. I also raised the issue regarding the children who are suffering from anxiety and stress about going back to school and what provisions for supports and counselling can be made for them. I spoke privately to the Minister after this and Minister Foley has assured me that she will do whatever she can to support children in their transition back to school.
