Dear Parents,

I hope you are all keeping safe & well. In this time of unpredictability we at Liscarroll NS are endeavouring to support your child's education. All classes will be set up on G Suite for education. The G suite platform allows students to complete presentations, work on documents collaboratively as well as communicating with class teachers through Google Classroom.

Third & Sixth Class are already set up on this platform & are familiar with its operation. Junior Infant to 2nd Class teachers will also utilise Google classroom to set homework & provide a space for communication & interaction with classteacher. This will be accessed by parents (details to follow). Google Classroom should be fully set up for all by Monday 30th. Classwork will be set every Monday & teachers will be available to support your child via Google Classroom throughout the school week. Teachers can assign work or activities; the work can then be submitted where relevant by your child back to the teacher. 

The activities & work your child will be presented with is to support their education in the best way we can. However we are fully aware that in this time of uncertainty we have no desire to place any further stresses on parents or children. Please engage with as much or as little material as you desire. It is important to have a balanced approach in our homes.

We will keep you updated over the next days & weeks with instructions regarding the usage of Google Classroom & its launch. We are aware there is a level of IT ability required and we will guide you as best as possible. Also if you do not have devices the classteacher can email work directly to you.

Kind Regards,

Eileen Barrett
