Home, School, Community Liaison
We are very fortunate to have the Home School Community Liaison (HSCL) scheme here in our school. The aim of the scheme is to promote partnership between home, school and the community and to ensure that every child participates fully in the school scheme.It recognises the role of parents as the primary educators of their children, the influence of the home environment and seeks to promote a partnership between school and parents and the local community.The scheme co-ordinator in our school is Mary McCann. She looks after the welfare of the parents of Scoil Treasa Naofa. She is available to discuss, on a personal level, matters of concern with parents in their own homes or at school, whichever the parent prefers.
How does the HSCL Scheme work?
A Home-School-Community Liaison co-ordinator is assigned to a school in a disadvantaged area. Activities undertaken by Mary are:
- Home visitations
- Organisation of in-school activities and courses for parents
- Advising and supporting parents on education- related issues such as study skills and the promotion of a stimulating home learning environment
- Meeting with community interests relevant to the education and welfare of pupils in the school
- Encouraging co-operation between home, school and community interests.
We have had a busy few months......
Since my start in October we've had a lady named Orla Carter in teaching us how to do a winter Floral display, We've been out in the community on our Christmas litter clean up of the locality.
