‘Starting school again in autumn is always a time of change, new teachers, new subjects, new routines, exams, perhaps a new school.  How much more is this true in 2020?’

In an article first published in the Church of Ireland Gazette, Peter Hamill and Robert Dunne highlight some ways in which we can help to support children at this time as the new school year begins.  Please click here to read more and feel free to share this with anyone for whom it may be useful.

The Board of Education (Republic of Ireland) represents the Church of Ireland in all educational matters applying to the State, including as an education partner with the Department of Education and Skills and other educational bodies.  It also supports religious education in primary schools under Protestant management and provides support, training and advice to primary level patrons and boards of management.
