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. For example;

Con’s Annual Gym Classes

Con will start his Gym classes on Thursday 20th September 2018 ( 9.00a.m.-10.30 a.m.) They run for the entire year and are free of charge to parents/guardians. Just bring a towel and some water. Why put off feeling good?

Harry’s Art Classes

Harry’s ever-popular art classes will return on Tuesday September 11th 2018. (10a.m. – 12.00p.m.) There is no charge for the art classes; we only request a donation of €20 to cover the high cost of art materials. 10 people is the maximum class size so early-sign up is a must!


Helen’s Christmas Flower Arranging Class

Helen’s annual Christmas Flower Arranging Class is in such demand that it will be definitely be happening again this year. This class is free and the date will be finalised shortly --- so watch this space.


Parent’s Room

A parent’s room will soon be available in the school and it is hoped that you will pop in and enjoy the hospitality of other parents in a warm and welcoming environment. Remember, “There is no problem to big that it can’t be solved with a little contemplation….over a cup of tea and a chat”.
