Parents’ Information Session

Tuesday 2nd May – 6.15pm

Over the last few months we have been looking to increase parental participation and we all hope you feel very welcome in school.  We have an open door policy but in addition to this, we thought an information session on issues parents often discuss maybe useful.  We intend to hold this prior to our Parent Council Meeting on Tuesday night . All parents are very welcome and there will be the opportunity to discuss composite classes and plans for the following year.

As this is the first information session we will plan a short presentation on composite classes and future plans for the primary.  However if there is another issue or topic you would like more information on please complete the comment box below.

Parent Open Afternoon

Hope to see you there!
