Just a reminder that there is a meeting regarding the proposal by Mulberry Schools Trust for the London Dock secondary school on Monday 31 Oct 6.30 pm at Raine House, Raine Street.
For the geographically challenged Raine Street is just south of 21 Wapping Lane, set back from the road on the green.
Unfortunately whatever Mulberry Schools Trust or Tower Hamlets Council have been up to since LW last wrote about this issue they have not been doing much in the way of being open or transparent or communicating with anyone in Wapping.
LW would like to congratulate @sjroshea who has been printing and distributing A5 leaflets to publicise the London Dock school issue ‘cos no-one else is. Well done Steve!
Update 08:57 31 October 2016 leaflet below.

Turn up and have your say
As ever LW would like to point out that if you don’t attend the meeting, listen and have your say then don’t whinge when a decision is made that is not to your liking.
There again as both Mulberry Schools Trust and Tower Hamlets Council seem incapable of undertaking the very basics of publicising this issue you could hardly be blamed for not bothering.
Or maybe that is their intention?
No more information
LW has offered to help Mulberry publicise this meeting but to date, despite a reminder, has received no more information than we have previously published.
Apart from the almost secretive approach to consultation, now a Tower Hamlets tradition it seems, LW also wonders why it should be that only parents can have any formal vote in the decision? Is that even legal?
Our Chief Education Correspondent (North Wapping) just mentioned the above event to three parents and not one of them were aware of it.
This is not good.
