Congratulations to Catherine Hurley and the Local Education Committee on the launch of a DIRECTORY OF SERVICES for Newtownmountkennedy and Surrounding Areas. The launch took place on the 5th of December.
The directory came about as a result of discussions during meetings of the Newtownmountkennedy Local Education Committee (LEC).
The LEC was formed under the remit of Catherine Hurley, Home School Community Liaison Programme. It aims to address issues in the community that impinge on children's learning and their lives in the community. Sub-groups of the committee are progressing work on important local issues by working closely in co-operation and partnership with parents, parish, school, pupils and community agencies.
The directory aims to provide an overview of services available locally in Newtownmountkennedy and in nearby towns.
The Home School Community Liaison Scheme was set up to promote partnership and cooperation between home, school and the community to make sure that every child participates fully in the school system.
