Attention New Junior Infant Parents 2013

I hope you have all enjoyed the summer break and are looking forward to your child’s next milestone – starting Junior Infants.

The class teacher for next year is Darren O’Neill. I am sure many of you will recognise him as an Irish Olympian Boxer during the London Games 2012. Darren has years of teaching experience behind him and is looking forward to starting meeting all the Junior Infant boys and girls on Wednesday! Katie Flynn is the support teacher for the class and Sharon Carr is the classroom assistant.

I have emailed parents a short Child’s Interests Survey from Darren that I would appreciate if you could complete. These forms can be emailed to darren@powerstownet.com or given to Darren when your child starts school. I have also emailed the school calendar for the year.

As part of the Junior Infant’s Induction Programme into primary school we vary the times that the Junior Infant attend for the first 3 weeks of school. This allows your child to become more comfortable and confident in the primary school setting. Please see deatils below.
