Student Care

 

Scoil Aireagail offers the following supports to ensure that students are happy and can strive towards achieving their potential.

CLASS TEACHER

Each student is assigned a class teacher whose role is to act as a sort of mentor for each student in his or her class. If a student has difficulties the class teacher will be the first person to deal with that difficulty. The class teacher will also encourage positive behaviour from students. If a parent has concerns over an issue the class teacher is the first person to contact. The matters dealt with by the class teacher will mainly be homework, discipline, uniform, and general behaviour.

SUPPORT/RESOURCE TEACHERS

We have a very thorough, efficient and effective support education system in the school. We screen every new entrant and then as resources permit, we provide support services in the areas of English and Maths in small groups.

SUPERVISED STUDY

All students are encouraged to join our supervised study arrangement. Study sessions occur every evening for two hours after school and are always supervised by a teacher.

CAREER GUIDANCE

The Guidance and Counselling service is well established in Scoil Aireagail. This service refers to a range of learning experiences designed to assist students to make choices about their lives. The service provides for the personal and social, educational and vocational development of its students.

The guidance and counselling process endeavours to help students to grow in self-knowledge and self-esteem by assisting them:

  • to understand their emotions, abilities, interests and special aptitudes
  • to acquire information about educational and career opportunities within a changing society
  • to make and carry out appropriate life choices and plans and to achieve satisfactory adjustments in life

Students can avail of this service by making appointments. Referrals to outside agencies are made through the Principal with parental consent.
