Research shows that children who are extremely competent in their 1st language learn their second language much better. Therefore, it is really important that children become proficient at speaking, reading and writing the language spoken in the home. This will enable them to develop a far richer vocabulary and sentence structure in the English language. Please see our Language Policy in the policy section of the website to see how we encourage the use of a child’s first language.
I am delighted to tell you that we have a Polish teacher coming to the school on Tuesday to speak with Polish parents about the possibility of running Polish classes after school. She will meet with the parents of Junior and Senior Infants together and 1st and 2nd Class together.
Junior and Senior Infants: 1.45 p.m. in Room 1
1st and 2nd Classes: 2.45 p.m. in Room 1
I know that many of our Polish children already attend Polish classes in different areas in Dublin. However, this may save you a lot of time travelling. Please come along to the meeting next week to find out more.
