As part of the implementation of the new Junior Cycle programme, the Department of Education and Skills
is providing two school days for continuous professional development for teachers in the school year 2017-18.
These mandated training days will help to ensure that DCW can continue to provide a broad educational experience and deliver a progressive Junior Cycle programme.
The first of these days will take place on Wednesday February 7th.
The second day is scheduled to take place on Thursday 22nd February.
There will be no school for students on either of these days.
We understand the disruption that this may cause for parents.
However, these days are essential for the successful implementation of the new Junior Cycle programme for your daughter.
We appreciate your support and look forward to successfully introducing this new programme over the coming years.
