We have had a few changes over the summer, what summer, says you !!!
Ms. Marion Hefferon, our Home/School/Community Liaison Co-ordinator (HSCL) for the past 8 years has left us and gone to St. Thomas’ as a Resource teacher, job-sharing. We are really sorry to see Marion leaving, but ever grateful for all the excellent work she has done in the school.
We are pleased to inform you that we have found a very capable replacement as HSCL, Ms. Madeline Lynch. Madeline will reap the benefits of the brand new Parents’ Room which has just been completed. The Special Education Team (SET) Room is also completed and will be operational shortly.
We were also sorry to lose our part-time caretaker, Ms. Lesa O’Dowd who has taken her family out of the school as the travelling was getting too much for her. We wish Lesa and the girls all the best in the future. Lesa very kindly found a replacement for us and Ms. Amanda Lawlor started with us on Monday 1st September.
During the summer holidays Ms. Edel McGlynn got married and now wishes to be referred to as Mrs. Beckett. It was a great wedding, the staff can confirm that!!
The Parents’ meetings will take place during the next four weeks.
We were delighted to welcome 12 new children into Junior Infants this year and their parents of course. Anastasia Kychygina has returned to us in 5th class, so we have 80 children in the school now.
The children in 5th and 6th class are doing a project on Legends from Ireland and around the World, and are going to The Giant’s Causeway on Friday 19th September.
Ms. Jane Barnes, our Resource Teacher, is doing a training course in Reading Recovery, which will be of great benefit to the children under her care. The course will take a year so Jane will be absent for some half days to attend this.
