Launch of education booklet for migrants
Community Links has developed a new booklet for parents, entitled “Your Child and Schools in Ireland”. It aims to give migrant and refugee parents clear information about education in Ireland, covering such topics as enrolment, the different types of primary and secondary schools, health checks, getting financial help for sending children to school, special educational needs, and language support. It is available in Romanian, Polish, Russian, Lithuanian, Arabic, Chinese and French as well as English. The official launch of the booklet will take place in Belvedere College on Wednesday 20 February at 6.00pm. For more information, contact Ruth Diaz-Ufano (Project Co-ordinator): 01-814 8644.
