Forum for principals and chairpersons
We have created this space to support communication within the Educate Together sector during the covid-19 emergency period. We will post the latest information bulletins from the Department of Education here for ease of reference and include links to the HSE guidelines that should be followed. We have also created a forum for you to ask questions that arise in your local management of the situation.
