DVD for Traveller Parents on Primary School

Pavee Point produced a DVD for Traveller parents on ways to support their children in primary school. Pavee Parents; Primary Concerns is an educational tool which stresses the importance of parental involvement and how this involvement enhances a child’s education. It also outlines the supports and organisations that are available for Parents.

“Many Traveller parents feel embarrassed visiting schools because of poor literacy. They may not be able to understand the words that are used or read the letters that are sent form the school.” – Kathleen McDonnell, Traveller parent.
