Athy College to present both to and for the Minister for Education on modern effective teaching methods which it has been developing over recent years as part of a new national initiative. On behalf of Athy College teacher Deirdre Murphy will demonstrate Instructional Leadership in the classroom by taking a second year class group to Mount Wolsley for the launch and there demonstrating effective teaching method in action. Developing these methods has been a collaboration with world reknowned educationalist, Prof Barrie Bennett, who visited the school just this week en route to the launch. Nice to see we have been acknowledged nationally for our work in education, nice to have been selected as the presenting school and great credit to the staff and students who have been working to make the classroom a place of learning. Over the coming years and following the launch we should see the rolling out of these methods and strategies to hundreds more schools nationally. Congratulations Athy College.
