Hi my name is Máire and I am the HSCL teacher in Letterkenny Educate Together. HSCL (Home School Community Liaison) teacher is appointed every 3 – 5 years in a school. This is my last year as the school’s HSCL teacher 🙁
The aim of the HSCL scheme is to promote partnership and cooperation between home, school and the community, ‘to enhance pupils’ learning opportunities and to promote their retention in the education system’.
My main role is to work with and support parents and families of our pupils and to organise ways in which parents can become involved in their child’s schooling. I may also visit you in your home and organises classes and courses, along with the other HSCL co-ordinators in the county.
