Dear Parents, It is with pleasure that I present to you the Board of Governors’ Report on Edendork P.S. for the academic year 2014/15. It is the intention of the Governors, and indeed the Principal, for you to be informed about your child’s progress at school and so this report is one of a number of ways in which information is provided. Schools are very busy places with so many initiatives happening and so this report can only serve as a “snapshot” into all the learning experiences presented in our school. It is intended this report gives you an overview and creates an opportunity for you to gain a flavour of the work, lifestyle and ethos of Edendork P.S. If you require information about your own child or have any concern, you should feel free at any time to contact the school and arrange an appointment with the Principal or your child’s teacher. Requests for additional information or clarification of any aspect of this report should be forwarded in writing to the school. On behalf of the Governors, I thank you for your support and look forward to your continued interest. I commend this report for your consideration Mrs K. Conlon Chairperson
