The Follow Me Religious Education programme

Greenlanes uses the Follow Me Religious Education Programme. This programme was developed by the Church of Ireland together with the Methodist and Presbyterian Boards of Education. It is constructed using the same framework of strand units found in the rest of the curriculum and can facilitate the integration of Religious Education with other curricular areas within the day to day life of the school.

Jacqui Wilkinson, Lecturer in Religious Education Church of Ireland Centre, DCU (Editor Follow Me programme) has written a very helpful 'Parent Friendly' Introduction to the Follow Me Programme. The guide can be found here.

Dear Parents, 

There is a new revised ‘Stay Safe’ Programme which we are now using throughout the school. It was written by four ladies, one of whom is Marian McHugh. Marian will facilitate an Information Morning so that parents can become familiar with the new revised programme. The new Stay Safe Programme is far more explicit and sensitive than the previous one. 

This will take place from 8:30am – 10am in the school on Friday 18thJanuary. Anyone who can be there please register here.
