First Year Parents' Evening

First Year Parents' Evening

First Year Parents' Evening:

There was a great attendance at our Information Evening, for Parents of our new First Year Students which was held remotely, via Microsoft Teams, on Tuesday last, 22nd September at 7 p.m.

Parents met with the Principal, Deputy Principal, Year Head, Guidance Counsellor and two of our Meitheal Leaders on the night and a brief presentation was given by each.

Amongst the many items that were addressed on the night were: topics such as supporting your son/ daughter as they manage the transition from Primary to Secondary School; an outline of the content of workshops that were covered with first years during their induction days e.g. Wellbeing, Study Skills, Organisation and Planning; advice for students and parents at this time and lots of tips on supporting first years on their learning journey. It was great to see so many there!

An added bonus of holding the meeting via Microsoft Teams was, that our first year students learned how to log on to the Microsoft Teams Platform, in preparation for the night. Microsoft Teams is used regularly by teachers and students in our school and it is a great tool for remote teaching and learning also, should we ever have to work from home again, on account of COVID 19. We all hope that that will not happen.
