RSE Curriculum Survey
The National Council for Curriculum and Assessment (NCCA) are currently reviewing the Relationships and Sexuality Education (RSE) curriculum for both primary and post primary schools in Ireland. As part of that review, NPC would like to hear the views of parents regarding their children’s RSE education in primary school so that NPC can make a submission to the NCCA, ensuring the views of parents right across Ireland are included on this issue.
This survey has been compiled in order to gather parents’ views on the topic. The closing date for this survey is the 27th of January 2019. To complete this survey please click this link https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/Review_of_RSE_Curriculum
Parent Evenings
We are interested in providing presentations / workshop for parents on topics that would be interesting to the school community. We would welcome ideas on topics that you would like to see. A recent example that was suggested was Mobile Phone Safety.
If you have any ideas of something that you think would be of interest or benefit to our community, send an email to pta@letns.org.
