Home Schooling 2.0

The first week back to home schooling, distance learning and live lessons has been very positive so well done to all the pupils, parents and staff for all the hard work.

It is great to see our new digital platforms, Seesaw and Google Classroom, being well utilised but if you’re running out of ideas please find below lots of suggestions of work, websites, online books etc that can be used for all ages across all subjects (in no particular order!).

Cork GAA’s juvenile body, Rebel Óg, has teamed up with Sciath na Scol to assist in the homeschooling effort by providing remote PE classes for as long as primary schools remain shut. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC32JMu4DI-gIzJ998ZqK_dw
