Home-school communications in cultural and linguistically diverse schools
The All-Island Education Network is an online community of practice created by Mother Tongues and Full Service Community Network for teachers (teaching 5 to 12 years old pupils) and practitioners in education settings North and South of the border interested in the themes of teaching EAL learners in the mainstream classroom, multilingual approaches in the classroom and developing home/school communication with migrant families.
Our first online meeting Home-school communications in cultural and linguistically diverse schools will take place on Wednesday 23rd of February at 7 pm via Zoom (free but registration needed, see below).
This time, we were delighted to meet Home-School Community Liaison Kate McCaughey. She talked to us about home-school communications in their setting, St Mary’s Primary school, a very cultural and linguistically diverse school in Dublin’s inner city.
Please, watch the video prior to our live discussion. These discussion sessions will be a safe space to share lived experiences and will be used as a medium for exchange and Q&A from the expert featured in the videos.
