Children's Rights Alliance and UNICEF
(241) Thursday, February 5, 2015

n January 2016, the United Nations (UN) will examine Ireland’s record on children’s rights. The examination is being carried out by the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child, a group of 18 experts who meet in Geneva, Switzerland. They will focus an international spotlight on Ireland. Previous examinations have led to significant improvements for children and young people.

 

The Irish Government submitted its report to the UN Committee in September 2013 setting out what they have done under the convention since 2006. To inform its work, the Committee accepts reports, known as ‘Parallel Reports’, from Non Government Organisation groups. The Children’s Rights Alliance – the national umbrella organisation for over 100 members – submits an independent report on behalf of its membership and NGO’s together with a report created by children and young people. These reports provide the committee with independent material on what is happening on the ground for children and young people in Ireland.

 

As part of this process the Children’s Rights Alliance and UNICEF are preparing a report to send to the United Nations in March to tell them what life in Ireland is like for children in Ireland. The report is being prepared by a group of children and young people and we would be really grateful if you could ask your child  to share their views and experiences by answering the questions a survey which can be accessed by clicking this link What is it like to be a child in Ireland?

Parent Teacher Meetings Reminder

 

5th February  2015

 

Dear Parents,

 

As per our invitations, Parent Teacher meetings take place on Monday 9th& Tuesday 10th  2015. The parent teacher meeting is fundamental to your child’s holistic development. Working together, as a team, on your child’s behalf will benefit your child. I implore each parent/guardian to attend their child’s meeting.

 

Please attend the meeting at the designated time  – all meeting times have been designated, therefore attendance at any other time on the allocated day is not possible.

 

Please collect your child promptly at the designated times, indicated below, on Monday & Tuesday as punctual collection of the children will ensure that maximum benefit can be derived from the meeting allowing the teachers to attend on time.

 

Assessment is a part of teaching and learning. As part of the assessment procedure in the school, teachers carry out a series of informal and formal assessments. Standardised Tests are a form of formal testing. When a teacher assesses a child they look holistically at the child- standardised tests are just one measure of one aspect of their learning.

 

At the Parent / Teacher meeting the teacher will outline a summary of the assessments in relation to your child.  Each teacher will provide you with an information sheet on standardised testing, where applicable, – from which you can gain further insight on testing.   

 

Please update your child’s Contact Information Details, with the class teacher, on the day of the meeting. Please pay any outstanding money to the class teacher.

 

I look forward to renewing your acquaintance over the two days of the parent teacher meetings and as with last year I plan to attend some of the meetings

Dear Parents,

 

 

Confirmation is the highlight of the Catholic school year.

 

Your child, whom you brought into the Catholic Faith through Baptism, now will join the Catholic Faith in their own right as full Christians.

 

As you have borne witness to the Faith on your child’s behalf they now will bear witness themselves. On your child’s behalf you have prepared them for this sacrament.

 

The children are putting  a lot of effort into their preparation and your support during the preparation is vital to indicate  to them the value you place on the sacrament.

 

We look forward to these upcoming events as follows:

 

Date

Tuesday 3rd March @ 10.30a.m.

Saturday 18th April @ 6.30p.m.

Sacrament of Confirmation

 

A new initiative regarding the preparation of the children for the sacrament is the House Visitation. Fr Seamus has instigated this wonderful initiative. The Parish Council will commence a series of visitations to houses regarding the Confirmation Programme – dates to be announced

 

In the interim I would encourage you to bring your child to the church to attend Mass regularly to acquaint your child with the faith community in preparation for reception of the sacrament. Mass is celebrated in St Luke the Evangelist Church and St Luke’s National School every Sunday.

Your attendance on the night encourages and motivates the children. A special word of thanks to all the teachers who have prepared the children.

 

However, it is your day to day support of the teaching staff, that ensures a strong partnership in education and assists in providing the children with a meaningful and worthwhile long term educational experience.

 

I am grateful to the Parents’ Association who have dedicated themselves to the school in so many ways throughout the first term. The Halloween and Christmas celebrations were a great success.
