NEW!! Post Primary School Leader and Teacher Views Regarding Continuous Professional Development (CPD)

The network of Education Centres in Ireland (ATECI), in collaboration with ASTI and TUI, is gathering school leader and teacher views regarding Continuing Professional Development. We would be most grateful if you would complete a questionnaire in order to help us provide the best possible professional development for you. The questionnaire aims to assist Education Centres to plan its programme of professional development for Post Primary teachers. Continuous Professional Development (CPD) refers to all learning activities undertaken by teachers.

We intend to close off the survey at the end of January so we would be very grateful if you could circulate the links below to a very brief questionnaire to your teachers and encourage them to send their responses as soon as possible.  

There is one survey for teachers and a similar, but slightly different, one for school leaders. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

School Leader Survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/CPD_Survey_PP_Principals_DeputyPrincipals

Teacher Survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/CPD_Survey_PP_Principals_DeputyPrincipals 

We know how busy schools are so we really appreciate your attention to this. The survey should take less than ten minutes to complete. Many thanks in advance!

Scríobh Leabhar Project 2017-18

FnG

SL

 

Offered in conjunction with Foras na Gaeilge, the Scríobh Leabhar Project aims to awaken children's interest in Irish language books, by encouraging them to design and write their own books as Gaeilge. Students can write about any theme or topic which is relevant for the school or local environment. Once we receive all of the books we will arrange a swapping of books so that all children can read books from another school, of a similar age group. While there are no overall winners chosen, one or two students per class are scheduled to receive a 'Gradam' Award. As part of our 20th Anniversary celebrations, we are delighted to announce that Seo Linn who ensured we had an excellent celebration last year, will be back with us to perform well know songs as Gaeilge at this year's event on the 26th April 2018.
