We understand that moving from primary to post-primary can be a daunting time for both student and parents. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any concerns. However, this year we are introducing a school-based mentoring programme called “Foróige’s Big Brother/Big Sister school Programme. Our incoming 1st years will be matched with a senior cycle student with the aim of developing a friendly and positive relationship that will not only support the first year student but will ultimately benefit both the junior and senior students involved. This, along with our Belonging+ Programme and our new tutor system, will make the transition as seamless and enjoyable as possible for your child.
St Jarlath’s Credit Union are giving away €1000 to 22 lucky students. If you have not already entered, please click on this link to do so. Closing Date for entry to this competition is the 7th September.
