 Home School Community Liaison Coordinator: Jen Healy 

Scoil Mhuire Junior is part of the Home School Community Liaison Scheme.

 

 

Who am I?

Hi everyone and welcome to Scoil Mhuire Junior. My name is Jen. I am a Primary School Teacher and I have been working in Scoil Mhuire Junior since 2014. In 2018 I stepped into a new role as Home School Community Liaison Coordinator which has given me a wonderful opportunity to get to know the families of the children in our care and develop relations with community initiatives that support families and children.

 

 

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. Our goal is to work together to create a school community where all people are respected and valued. We 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.

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.
