Schools for the Future

a community vision for 21st Century education in mid and northwest Pembrokeshire

Our future, our life, our legacy

IMG_20150228_124735The Council’s public consultation starts at St Davids City Hall at 6.30 on Monday 23 March. We now have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to agree a plan of our own – a realistic and practical vision of the 21st Century education that we want – and to campaign for that vision to become the future of our infants, the daily life of our families and our legacy for generations to come.  On this website you’ll find all you need to know to have your say and make a real difference.  Here are the dates you can’t miss……

St Davids schools for the future is holding two meetings to gather your views and turn them into a proposal on behalf of the whole community.  We will gather support for the proposal through a petition and if we can speak with one voice it will carry a lot of weight.

The Council can then choose to incorporate our views or ignore them.  If it ignores them we can object which will force the decision to go to the Welsh Government.  If things go that far there will be a lot of lobbying to be done in the run up to next year’s Council and Assembly elections!

But the council is showing flexibility and a willingness to listen so hopefully things won’t go that far if we come together to make our voice heard.

  1. Again I wish to express my concern that though inevitably SaveYDS has to talk to the council it would be an utter folly to respect their ‘flexibilty and willingness to listen’. Kate Evan Hughes and Jamie Adams are the people who oversaw the previous ‘consultation’, which we all know led to a complete travesty – and which may have led to the closure of the school but for the magnificent intervention of the community. We must therefore ‘deal’ with them on the basis that (quite simply) they cannot be trusted.

    I have every confidence in the folks leading the SaveYDS campaign but they would be doing us a disservice if they cuddled up too close to the people who previously so crassly and cynically failed to listen until they feared for their jobs and their reputations. We have no obligation to be polite and ‘civilised’ with these people; they are to be ‘dealt with’ and then outflanked again should they betray us again. Many of us still suspect an agenda which gifts millions to the 6th Form college. We are suspicious of the links between certain individuals and that establishment. So we are watching…
