Tips on protecing your children on the Internet (opens as doc.)
The National Adult Literacy Agency (NALA) has developed Help My Kid Learn - a simple website that brings together relevant information for parents and the wider community to support children’s literacy and numeracy development.
The website’s purpose is to provide fun activities that parents can do with their children to develop their literacy and numeracy. It includes general information, fun activities and useful tips. Help My Kid Learn is a website where people can see that supporting a child’s literacy and numeracy development is a natural, easy and fun activity that can be integrated into any part of their day.
The Department of Education has asked all schools to engage in a process of School Self Evaluation.
It is an evidence based approach which involves gathering evidence from a range of sources and making judgements with a view to bringing about improvements in pupil's learning.
In Lissivigeen N.S. we decided to work on an aspect of literacy 'Speaking and Listening' which we feel is an area we could improve on.

A group – Lissivigeen N.S. – has been set up for parents who are interested in carpooling to school.
How it Works: 1. Register with the group Lissivigeen N.S. on the CarSharing.ie website.
2. Add a Trip - i.e. Add the details of from where you are travelling, the time you are leaving, space in your car, etc. Only members of the group will be able to see the trips. You do not have to pinpoint your exact address.
3. View trips from other parents, once they have registered their trips.
4. Send requests of interest to start the process.
Only members of the group can see the trips – it is not visible to users who are not members of the group.
CarSharing.ie is managed by the NTS - Lissivigeen N.S. does not have any control over how it works.
