My name is Lorraine and I run the social media pages All Things Primary! I am a mum of 2 and 2 fur babies, deputy principal, a keen gardener, white wine and book loving red head!
It is that time of year… planning and preparing for our online summer courses has well and truly commenced.
Teresa, Principal of a primary school in Cork and more recently during lockdown- a “highlighter” reader. Teresa loves working as a principal and has a fantastic team of colleagues that create a warm and safe environment for students to flourish.
Rebecca, Second Class teacher in an Educate Together school in Dublin and more recently during lockdown- a DIY fanatic. I completed my BA in St. Patrick’s College, my PGCE & NQT year in England, taught abroad for three years in Qatar and now I am back in Ireland for the second year. I love teaching English and enjoy getting really creative with lessons.

I have been teaching 1st class for the past three years and enjoy working on the In-school Management Team also. Last year I had the opportunity to develop a Yearly planner for Special Education Teachers and have loved that experience. 2021/22 is on the way, watch this space!

Easter is such a fun time of the year in school and provides such an exciting opportunity to integrate this theme into all of your lessons
St. Patrick’s Day, which ends Seachtain na Gaeilge, is a fantastic chance to celebrate everything there is to love about Ireland and the Irish culture.
This 25 minute activity allows teachers to reflect honestly on their strengths and areas of development professionally.
Take the time to sit down with a pen and paper and get your thoughts organised.
