Inside Education on 103.2 Dublin City FM

I know that very many of the readers of this Blog are people in our school community and the wider Balbriggan community who have a deep seated interest in Education. It is both to my great shame and delight that I have only just now found an excellent radio documentary programme on Irish Education braodcast on 103.2 Dublin City FM ( Sundays 6.30pm) and are available through easily accesible podcast on this link . To date there are 48 programmes in the archive, and our own Student Council and their views on Teacher Recruitment features in Programme 48 ( first broadcast live on Sunday June 6th). Some really interesting programmes in this series (in my opinion) are:

  • our friend and adviser Simon Lewis ( Principal of Carlow ETNS) offering his wealth of knowledge and opinion on Technology for the Whole School ( Programme 38),
  • Programme 32 on Bullying in Schools
  • Programme 18 Seamus Heaney on Poetry and Pedagogy
  • and much much more on muticulturalism, special needs education, drama , mathematics……

Congrats to Sean Delaney ( Marino) and Barry Hennessy ( journo) on this wonderful initiative. Please feel free to leave a comment and I’d especially love to hear what highlights you have found and what, in your opinion, might be relevant to the develpment of best-practice in our own school.
