The Batman effect: How roleplay boosts children’s academic achievement

If you open the door to Lisa Hanley’s classroom you could be greeted by anyone from a doctor to an astronaut, a farmer or, if you’re lucky, Batman himself. The sand tray might be filled with compost while, in another corner of the room, a child is helping The Three Little Pigs build their dream home, complete with indoor swimming pool.

Survey for parents and children - a chance to have your say in what kind of secondary school experience you would like for your child and what kind of experience your child would like

Following the recent development of a new Junior Cycle framework, discussions are starting to take place about revising the Senior Cycle framework. As with the Junior Cycle these revisions will only take place after much consultation, research and development resulting in any change to the curriculum unlikely to occur for a number of years. With this in mind we would like to ensure that parents of children in primary school have a chance to have their say as it is most likely your children that will feel the first effects of any changes.
