Learning Support Co-ordinator Mrs Julie Mulcahy:

If a student has specific support hours and already have an allocated staff member to work with them – the Teacher Aid has already set up Google

STEPS testing can be done online and Mrs Reshef will organise this if needed. If your daughter is on the Learning support roll and she needs to contact a Learning Support team member, use the staff members normal school email.
