booklists

Booklist Costs for September 2017 are available here. Books will be available for collection on Wednesday 23rd August from 10am to 2pm. If you are not available on the 23rd, the books will be placed in your child's classroom ready for September 1st. 

Payment can be made anytime between now and the 23rd of August using the secure payment link you received by email. Click here if you have misplaced or deleted the link.

Junior Infant Children do not have to pay for books. The Registration Fee included the Booklist Fee. The Registration Fee paid for older children joining the school will go towards the Booklist Fee. 

The school has covered all books. Any books on loan or on school funding must be kept in a good condition as they need to be re-used from year to year. It is very disappointing that due to lack of care books have to be discarded and replaced.

Five teachers from Greenlanes have successfully completed the Religious Education Certificate Course (Follow Me).  This course is offered by the General Synod Board of Education and was coordinated and taught by Jacqui Wilkinson (Church of Ireland Centre, DCU).

This Certificate is offered to existing teachers in Church of Ireland and other Protestant primary schools who did not undertake their initial teacher education qualifications in the former CICE. The course builds on the teachers’ prior classroom experience in teaching RE in Church of Ireland schools and aims to extend their skills, knowledge, confidence and resources in this important subject area. The teachers ended the course on Thursday 15th with a short service led by the Rev Dr Anne Lodge.

Rev Dr Lodge visited Greenlanes this morning to present the certificates to the teachers. Well done to Mr O’Sullivan, Mr Moynihan, Mrs Teeling, Ms Cawley and Ms Clinch!
