Parent Workshops

We in St. Joseph’s Primary School recognise that children’s education is an ongoing partnership between home and school. Parents are their children’s first educators and together we can share in the educational development of each child and build a secure and happy environment in which learning flourishes. Close contact with all of our families is crucial for our children to achieve personal and academic success.

  • Research continues to inform that when schools, families, and community groups work together to support learning, children tend to do better in school, stay in school longer, and like school more.
  • Students with involved parents get higher scores, enroll in higher-level programs and have good attendance, stronger social skills and better behaviour.

Parents, guardians and members of our community are invited to join us for a number of parent workshops during the school year. All workshops are FREE and specifically designed to support pupil learning.  We firmly believe that it is the best interest of our children that we share with you the knowledge and skills of how we teach as this will ultimately benefit pupil learning.

Workshops include

  • Journey with your child through P1
  • Linguistic Phonics
  • Mental Maths
  • Stay & Play (play based learning)
  • Parent & Child Cookery
  • Parent & Child Horticulture
  • Parent & Child Science
