Parenting Support and Workshops

Parent and Carer Workshops

Castlebar School places strong emphasis on working together with parents and carers.  We offer a range of parent and carer programmes, workshops and coffee mornings throughout the academic year.  We aim to provide a range of services that encompass both educational and practical sessions, as well as opportunities for parents to share their own knowledge and expertise and gain support from one another.

The Parent and Carer Brochure has been produced to help promote the programmes that will be offered during the Autumn and Spring Term.  Click the brochure image to view the brochure.  If you have any feedback or interest in a specific topic, please share them with Heather England.
