Learning Support Teachers

We are very fortunate in our school to have a large and dedicated learning support team led by Mrs. Niamh Williams. Learning Support in our school is a mix  of in class support, such as guided reading , maths recovery and team teaching and withdrawal of children in groups or individually depending on their needs at the time. We also have a teacher who specialises in Reading Recovery.  A lot of our learning support is aimed at Senior Infants 1st  and 2nd classes as early intervention is proven to be most effective .

The Guinness Book of World Records, which has just turned 60, holds the record for being one of the most frequently stolen books from public libraries in the United States. Since it was published on August 27th, 1955, the book of world records has brought the world’s heaviest people and the world’s tallest horses to more than 134 million people. The world’s best, worst and weirdest have had their achievements and afflictions written down in 21 languages in 100 countries. It is the bestselling annual book in the history of publishing.

In March 2014  nearly 1000 children and adults in our school dressed up as St Patrick and broke the Guinness World Record .
