HSCL

 

The Home School Community Liaison (HSCL) Scheme has been running in Presentation Primary School since 2007.
Our HSCL teacher is shared between three schools - Presentation Primary School, Scoil Iosagáin and St. Michael’s School.
The HSCL Coordinator is Ms. Elaine Considine who can be contacted on 087 2101903.
Doireann Garrad is also the HSCL Coordinator who works between the three schools and she can be contacted on 087 6421791.
Our HSCL scheme aims to increase the link between home and school by encouraging parents to become more involved in their children’s education.
We aim to encourage the self-development, literacy skills and activities of parents so that they as the primary educators of their children will be positive role models, encouraging the educational and personal advancement of their children.
Goals of the HSCL Programme:
• To maximise active participation of the children in the school in the learning process.

• To promote active co-operation between home, school and relevant community agencies in promoting the educational interests of the children.

Locally based activities are organised by the HSCL coordinator which set out to encourage greater contact between parents, teachers and with local voluntary groups. Activities in our school include
• Home Visits – The HSCL coordinator visits parents in their own homes. In particular the HSCL coordinator will visit the homes of our Junior Infants but other parents can make arrangements themselves to meet with the HSCL teacher at a time of their choice. This can be arranged by calling the HSCL coordinator 087 2101903.
• Courses for parents are run throughout the year on a range of topics: some of these include English classes, cookery, knitting and crochet, sewing class, yoga and Mindfulness and Men’s shed. Parents may enrol in these courses by filling out the application forms supplied to their children in school or by calling/texting the above number.


Attendance
One of the most important things your child can do to achieve academic success is also one of the most basic: going to school every day. In fact, research has shown that your child’s attendance record may be the biggest factor influencing their academic success.
Achievement: Students who attend school regularly are more likely to have greater success in their reading and math than students who don’t attend school regularly.
School Community: just by being present at school, your child becomes an important member of our school community, learning valuable social skills, and developing a broader world view.
The Importance of Education: Your commitment to school attendance will also send a message to your child that education is a priority for your family, going to school every day is a critical part of educational success.
