Goodbye Miss Maguire

Today is Miss Maguire’s last day with us at Leckaun NS. On behalf of the staff and pupils I would like to say thank you to Ms Maguire for all her hard work this year. It has been a pleasure having her in our school this year. Unfortunately we cannot give our thanks in person but hopefully she will come back to see us soon!

Learning at Home Booklets

All Class Levels - Reading

Vooks

All class levels






Vooks is committed to being a resource for families to keep kids reading at home. 
Vooks can also be a welcome distraction for parents, allowing them to enjoy
time with their kids, watching and discussing books together.
To help, we have created take-home lesson plans that can be shared with
parents and guardians -
built to provide children with 20 minutes a day of read aloud time and activities.
