Izak9's use nurtures effective delivery of the skills of the maths curriculum for teachers. Problem solving, reasoning, integrating and connecting opportunities permeate naturally in a shared learning environment much loved by children.
This series of two workshops is suitable for current users as well as those considering introducing Izak9 to their school. It is also open to both primary and post-primary teachers.
The Department’s Wellbeing Office has updated the Guidance for Schools on supporting the wellbeing of school communities as schools reopen. This is attached here for your information and is also published at https://www.gov.ie/en/publication/52642-supporting-the-wellbeing-of-school-communities-as-schools-reopen-guidance-for-schools/ .
In addition, a shorter document outlining a summary of the resources that are being made available to support wellbeing at this time is also attached.
The Gaeilge versions of both of these documents are being finalised and will be available shortly.
The Department has worked closely with its broad range of support services and agencies, and with the HSE/HSE-funded services and the Tusla Education Support Service to create an aligned and coherent package of supports and resources to assist schools in this regard.
We have been asked to share these with you and hope that you find them helpful.
