Sinn Féin MLA Karen Mullan has paid tribute to Creggan school leaders following a meeting she organised with the Department for Education Permanent Secretary and officials.
Speaking following the meeting, the Foyle MLA commented:
“I hosted a meeting with the leaders of the schools in Creggan with the Permanent Secretary in the Department for Education to discuss more finance and support for schools.
“The mental health and wellbeing of their pupils has been impacted in recent times and schools need additional support to help their pupils to deal with these issues.
“I am asking all government departments to work collaboratively alongside our schools, community groups, youth groups, sporting and community organisations to provide our young people with every opportunity in life”.
