The aim of the ‘Home School Community Liaison Scheme’ is to promote partnership and cooperation between home, school and the community to ensure that every child participates fully in the school system and reaches their full potential.
The H.S.C.L. scheme recognises parents as the primary educators of their children. In my role as Home School Liaison, I am employed by Ballinode Community College to support you the parent / guardian in helping you in your role as parents and educators. The way in which I can offer you, support is by informing you of educational and financial supports that are in place in the school. For example, some of the supports in place for the students include; a subsidised lunch scheme, information on additional top up grants for students progressing to further study, as well as information on supports available to you in the community.
Supports in place for parents include direct access to the H.S.C.L.O., a parent’s room where you can meet other parents and attend courses for parents, which are held in the Clarion Village. All talks and classes focused on the parents and guardians are based on the requests and needs of parents. (Note: The talks and courses are free of charge).
I am directly available to you either in person every Friday in the Schools Parents Room in the Clarion Village, from 11:20 am to 1:00 pm, (please feel free to drop in), or alternatively you can contact me on my direct line @ 087 1302681 and we can organise to meet at your home or school.
The H.S.C.L. scheme is there for the benefit of you and your child / children. I welcome your ideas, opinions and requests, so please feel free to contact me
