A new language curriculum for English and Irish is being introduced in all Primary Schools . During 2016/17 all teachers received in-service and schools closed for one day. During 2017/18 schools nationwide will receive training for another day. Training for St. Felim's is scheduled for January 2018. We will therefore be closed for 1 day. We are gradually introducing this new curriculum on a phased basis, beginning in Junior and Senior Infants. The new language curriculum covers reading, writing and oral language in both English and Irish. The National Council for Curriculum and Assessment (NCCA) have produced parent information leaflets which you might like to look at. Please click on the links for further information. I hope you find them helpful.
