 Home School Community Liaison Coordinator: Jennifer Healy

Who am I?

Hi everyone! My name is Jen and I am the Home School Community Liaison Coordinator in our school. I am a Primary School Teacher and have been working in Scoil Mhuire Junior since 2014! I am really looking forward to the opportunity of getting to know all the families of the children in our care. We are always looking for parents to get involved and take part in school related activities. Please don’t hesitate to contact me on 087-2768580/ 01-2243764 if you are interested in getting involved in Parent courses or helping out with school activities! 


What do I do?

My role involves promoting active co-operation between home, school and relevant community agencies in promoting the educational interests of the children.

The goal is to work together to create a school community where all people are respected and valued. I believe that open communication and mutual support is a great way to achieve this goal.

I work with parents in many different ways to develop their capacity as a key resource in their children’s learning.


How can I be contacted? 

You can contact me during school hours by phone (call, text or whatsapp!) or email. My office is located in the main reception area of the school- Drop by!

The Importance of ATTENDANCE


One of the most important things your child can do to achieve academic success is also one of the most basic: going to school EVERYDAY. In fact, research has shown that your child’s attendance record may be the biggest factor influencing their academic success. If for some reason your child is absent from school, please upload the reason for absence on Aladdin Connect.

In the event of further lockdowns, learning from home may have to resume. Please fimiliarise yourself with google classroom as this will be used to deliver lessons to the children. 


Please ensure that you have downloaded and set up your child’s Gmail account. This will be the main method of communication used by the school to update parents/ guardians. If you have mislaid the details, please contact the school or myself as asap and we will help you with the set up.

If you are having trouble accessing your Google classroom account, please get in touch! 087-2768580/ 01-2243764
