Notice to Parents

We are hoping to establish a school to home text service to promote a wider spectrum of communication tools to get messages to parents and carers. I have sent home with pupils today (15th March) a form to be completed by you the parents which simply requests that you submit a mobile phone number to the school. This will allow us to optimise the effectiveness of communications from the school to you and remove an over reliance on children having to remember that they have a note to be given to parents.
So look out for the form which your child should have and return it to school as soon as possible.

Peter McDonnell

PREPARING FOR UNPLANNED SCHOOL CLOSURE
ONLINE LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES AT HOME PROVIDED BY C2K
 
Winter is upon us again and we remember only too well the misery many people experienced across Northern Ireland last year. On more than one occasion, schools had to close unexpectedly and the education of pupils of all ages was disrupted.
 
In preparation for similar circumstances this year, C2k has drawn up sets of curriculum resources that can be accessed by learners at home online via the online learning platform, LearningNI( Primary and Special). These are ready-made bundles of Resources for Courses which are packed full of ideas for lessons and collaborative learning activities to help prepare for any unforeseen school closure. They are now available for download from the Library > Staff > Resources for Courses. They are designed for teachers to take and modify to suit their own particular class or age group in advance of any emergency school closure.
 
They are available round the clock to all teachers and pupils, both inside and outside school and they can be used at any time during the year to provide anytime, anywhere eLearning opportunities. 
Your child will have thier own logon and password details issued in school and should be able to access the resource from home.
