Saturday 16 June 2018 - National College of Ireland - 10.30am-4pm

All parents are welcome to attend, ADMISSION IS FREE and lunch is provided

Our Keynote Speaker is Tako Rietveld from the Netherlands with his presentation Making the voice of young people heard. 

Tako Rietveld is the world’s first and only 'Youth Correspondent'. 
Children look at the world from a different perspective than adults. They have their own unique thoughts, views and opinions. With Tako’s help, we can learn from the children and act on it. He will take us on his journey into the world of young people. With powerful examples he will show young people are more than just happy creatures that like to play. 'Children inspire, surprise, make you think and make you smile. Adults teach children all about life. Children teach adults what life is all about. 

As a former reporter for the Dutch NOS 'Jeugdjournaal' Tako has travelled all over the world reporting for children about the various situations in the world. Tako set-up the ‘De Kindercorrespondent’ platform so that the stories and the opinions of children can be heard. According to Tako children are too rarely heard in the news. He won’t stop until the voice of every child is being heard.

Other speakers include the Minister for Education and Skills, Mr. Richard Bruton T.D, Paul Gilligan CEO of St. Patrick's Mental Health Services and a spokesperson from the Ombudsman for Children's Office.

Information stands will be available on the day from information providers and companies.

Greenlanes is delighted to announce that we will shortly roll out the Aladdin Connect App to parents/guardians of the school.   

The school uses the Aladdin software service www.aladdin.ie for administrative purposes and Connect will give you secure access to messages from the school and to details of your child’s attendance, test results, etc via secure login from your internet browser or Aladdin Connect App. To comply with GDPR, Connect will be the only method of accessing your child's end of year reports going forward. 

Aladdin Connect is a fantastic way to enhance our communication with parents. It enables you to stay connected and informed about your child's education by:
- Ensuring that we have your most up to date contact information
- Keeping you apprised of your child's attendance
- Keeping you up to date on school and classroom news via noticeboard messages
- Allowing you view your child's approved report card
- Giving you the option to opt in to share contact information with your child's classmates’ parents via the Parent Privacy option for the class list.
- Allowing you to view your child's latest standardised test results

You can rest reassured that Aladdin Schools uses state-of-the-art security to safeguard information entered by the school and data is stored and processed in strict compliance with Irish and European data protection laws (GDPR).


On Monday 28th May, you will receive an email containing your registration link. There will be one link per parent which will allow you to access information for all your children in the school from one user account. Please do not forward this text/email or share this link as this is a unique registration code for each parent for your child/children in this school. During registration you will choose a password that will be used in conjunction with your email address to securely access the Aladdin Connect going forward. Once you are registered you will be sent an email with links to download the Aladdin Connect App for your mobile device. The main advantage of using the App is to receive immediate alerts for app messages sent by your school. Downloading the App is essential to enhance both the parent and school's Connect experience.

By default both parents will have access to their child’s contact information. If for any reason you do NOT wish to share your own personal contact information within the family circle or if you have any concerns regarding your particular family setup please contact the school in confidence before 12pm on Monday 28th May to discuss or have this facility restricted.

If you have any questions or queries regarding Aladdin Connect, please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
