Thank you 1024x682 1

We would like to thank everybody - teachers and staff, children, parents, volunteers, sponsors, Dublin County Council, the Scouts and the Gardai for their contribution to the Sponsored Walk.

We were fortunate to have a beautiful morning and judging from feedback everybody appears to have enjoyed the visit to Bull Island. It was a great team effort and we appreciate the engagement and enthusiasm of all in support of the school

 
Thanks
Ronan White
PA Chairman

A huge congratulations to all classes, staff, pupils and parents for participating in our Discover Primary Science and Maths Programme this year. Due to your participation and hard work we have just received the Discover Primary Science and Maths Award.

A lot of time, preparation and hard work went into planning and organsing the programme and presenting our Discovery Log for review. The Discovery Log was a key aspect of the application for an Award and  provided all the evidence the judging panel needed to demonstrate that Greenlanes met all of the criteria for an Award of Science & Maths Excellence. 

Well Done All!

Janet has been involved in educational research for many years, researching issues such as networks and federations of schools, the evaluation of the impact of continuing professional development of teachers, middle leadership in universities.

For the past 10 years, much of Janet’s work has been concentrated around the value and impact of parents’ engagement with their children’s learning.  Janet has published widely on the subject, in both the academic and popular press, and on social media.  She has just completed a yearlong pilot of a toolkit to support schools in this area, working with over 30 schools in Wiltshire Local Authority. 

Janet’s new book, Narrowing the Achievement Gap: Parental Engagement with Children’s Learning, was published by Routledge in the spring.

Guest speakers -

  • Niall de Burca - Niall is a traditional storyteller with a unique style that turns an ancient art form on its head and drives it into the 21st century. Combining powerful stage presence and delivery, he has an ability to reach all ages from early childhood through to teenagers and on to elders. Niall will demonstrate this art form and will show parents how they too can engage their children through storytelling and by doing so enhance their learning at home.
  • Mette With Hagensen - Mette With Hagensen, Msc BA, mother of 3 and president of the Danish Association of School Boards and Parents in public schools, Skole og Forældre. Mette represents a strong voice for parents and she is an advocate for close cooperation between schools and parents in the shared responsibility to educate children and to ensure that children stay curious, creative and inventive in school and in their everyday life. Play is fun and learning should also be fun in order to engage children and create interaction and involvement in class. 

    The NPC Fred O'Connell Award will take place on the day, Recognising innovative partnership between parents and schools.

    Fred O’ Connell was involved with NPC in the early years of the organisation development. Fred served as Chairperson and Vice Chairperson of NPC and was also NPC’s first paid employee. Fred believed that parents have a vital role to play in their child’s education. This award is in honour of Fred. 

    The NPC Fred O’Connell Award seeks to shine a light on the excellent partnership work that we know Parent Associations are engaging in across Ireland.
