Dear Parents,


Thank you for your work and for your co-operation in supporting the RE Curriculum and the Grow in Love programme.


We are seeking your co-operation once again. We would like to invite two parents/guardians from our school, St. Luke's NS, to join in an in-service session in the RE Curriculum and the Grow in Love programme.


The role of parents as the primary educators of their children is vital.  The Diocesan Advisers will explore this role at the in-service with the parents in the teaching of Religious Education.


This in-service will take place in the Holy Cross Diocesan Centre, Clonliffe Road, Dublin 3, on Monday, 8th April 2019 from 12.30-2.30pm.


If you feel you may be free to attend this in-service meeting and represent our school - please leave your name with Kate before March 30th 2019. We will contact you then to make further arrangements.


Many thanks for your help with this matter.
