As part of TUSLA’s (The Child and Family Agency) ‘Every School Day Counts’ national attendance campaign, in the month of November, our school will we taking part in the 20 day challenge.
This attendance awareness campaign runs annually in schools across Ireland focusing on improved attendance with the aim of boosting children to get the most out of their time in education.
During the month of November there are 20 school days – the aim for all children is to be in school every day each week. If children reach this goal they will receive homework passes to celebrate their family’s achievement.
The month will also be broken up into four 5 day segments – if a child is in 5 out of 5 days they will get 10 dojo points from their class teacher on Friday.
Below are some really helpful tips from TUSLA to help prepare ourselves for reaching our November goal.
