The Home School Community Liaison (HSCL) Teacher in the school is Deirdre Fenlon.  The HSCL is there to support parents and can be contacted at 087 443 0832,

Our school is a community of teachers, parents and students and the HSCL acts as a link for that community.

Our school is also a participant in the wider community of Clonmel.  The HSCL acts as a link to community partners such as the local ETB, Clonmel Community Mothers, Barnardos, etc.

As primary educators of the children, parents are welcomed into the school and encouraged to participate in a variety of initiatives to enhance the lives and the learning experiences of their families.
