After the success and fun had last year we are running another Christmas Wreath Making Class for parents on Friday 8th December in the schools from 9:30am. All materials are provided and the class is free but places are limited. If you are interested please see Paddy Kinsella. A special thanks to Audrey for giving up her time to coordinate the class.
We are running another Parent Plus Early Years Course this year for parents of children from 1 – 8 years of age. This will be our third year to run the course and it proved to be a great hit the last 2 years. It is run all over Ireland and results of parent feedback has been extremely positive.
The Parents Plus Early Years Programme is ideal for parents who want to maximise their children’s learning, language and social development, as well as reduce behaviour problems, stresses or difficulties using practical and positive steps. The programme is suitable both for children within the normal range of development as well as children with special needs such as ADHD, speech and language and other development difficulties.
The Parents Plus programme runs for 6 weeks from 9:15 – 11am.
We are running STEM for Fun again this year and are hoping to include all classes. We have started with Junior and Senior Infants and this will run up until Halloween. STEM for Fun involves children engaging in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths activities in a fun way from playing Giant Jenga to Lego Construction Challenges to Maths activities on our tablets. The children love it but we do need the help of parents to run it.
If you have 90minutes free on a Wednesday morning and would like to help please talk to Paddy Kinsella. Below is the timetable for this year’s STEM for Fun. Why not volunteer for a couple of weeks when your child’s class are taking part?
Junior Infants and Senior Infants September – October (5 weeks)
