Hi, my name is Brenda Flanagan;-

The new Home School Community Liaison Co-ordinator (HSCL) in Donahies Community School.

My main role is to work with you, the parents & guardians, along with teachers and the wider community, to enhance your son/daughters learning opportunities, and to promote attendance, participation and retention in school.

As part of my job, I will sometimes visit you in your home, to work with you, to act as a support to you in whatever way I can around any issues that may impinge on your child’s attendance, participation and retention in school. I am here to offer a friendly ear and support if it’s needed.

I also organise courses and activities for parents/guardians.

We are delighted at DonahiesCS to announce the opening of our new ‘Parent’s Room’.

Open to parents from 9.15 a.m. to 12.15 p.m. every Wednesday , it will be a place to have a chat over a cup of tea/coffee, listen to the radio, maybe read a book, but above all else a place to relax.

Please feel free to call in and make yourself at home!

You can meet with me, Brenda, the new HSCL and other members of the school community, who can provide a valuable source of friendship, support, encouragement and reassurance.

Information on new courses, activities and local facilities will be available to view on our bulletin board and there is a small library if you just want a quiet read and a cuppa.


Wishing all students a lovely Halloween break!

Looking forward to starting my home visits after mid-term.
