Can I draw your attention to this month’s calendar article about Junior Secondary? As part of our response to the School Improvement Unit review earlier this year where it was identified that we need to become a true P-9 school and given the small number of children we have in the high school, we will not have separate classes of 7, 8 & 9, but rather one straight Junior Secondary multiage class like we do in the primary classes. This will also free up teachers to support each other in their areas of expertise.

Simply refresh yourself on the challenges of working with children of Junior Secondary age.
