MAY Dates for your diary

2 May dates for your calendar:

Saturday 6th May

Compass AGM at the King's Hospital School, Dublin, from 10am to 1.30pm

Including a discussion on - Junior Cycle – Changing for the Better’

We are delighted that Dr Padraig Kirk, Director, CPD for Junior Cycle, and who is spearheading this initiative, will give a talk on ‘Junior Cycle – Changing for the Better’.  This talk will help to better inform parents about the new exciting way of education for Junior Cycle going forward.  It is expected that parents will play a more involved role in ongoing education of their children. We would encourage parents, particularly of 1st and 2nd Year students, to attend this talk by Dr Kirk who is at the cutting edge of this educational change.
