On Tuesday 25th October at 7:30 in the school there will be a meeting for the parents of our Junior Infant classes and a meeting for parents of our Senior infant classes. The class teachers will talk to the parents and outline the curriculum for each level. They will explain what is expected of the parents at home in order to fully support the education of the children. Teachers will discuss reading and reading readiness, they will tell you about Aistear, the Early Childhood Curriculum Framework. They will also discuss homework and specifically how best you can help your child in these early days of schooling. Gemma, our Home School Liaison teacher and Colette, the principal, will also address the meetings and be available to answer your questions. This is a general meeting for parents and not a forum for individual progress reports on the children. There will be individual clinic meetings next term during which the teacher will give a report to you the parent on all aspects of your child's education and social development.
