Wicklow students take part in innovative teaching initiative
Students representing Baltinglass schools Scoil Chonglais and Scoil Naomh Iosaif attended a special Shared Learning Day recently in Maynooth as part of an innovative teaching initiative.
Through BEACONS – Bringing Education Alive for our Communities on a National Scale – the Teaching Council is leading a diverse group of stakeholders and people exploring new ways of supporting more and better conversations between teachers, parents and students at local community level.
The goal is to develop a range of models that any school could choose from and adapt to their own needs, based on the emerging core principles of the programme.
