The Financial Support Services Unit (FSSU) was established by the Department of Education & Skills (DES) in 2005 and has operated as a support mechanism for school management in the Voluntary Secondary Schools sector for the last 13 years. The FSSU has now expanded these services to the school management of Primary and Community & Comprehensive Schools. The expansion of the FSSU to include primary level is referenced in the Governance Manual for Primary Schools and is included in the DES Action Plan for 2017 and a circular entitled ‘Roll Out and Operation of the FSSU at Primary Level’ (Circular No.0060/2017) was published in September 2017.

What is Y-PATH PE 4 ME?
Y-PATH (Youth Physical Activity Towards Health) PE 4 ME is a junior cycle post-primary programme which aims to improve physical activity among children and young people through the physical education (PE) module in the school curriculum. The programme is bought to you as a result of a collaboration between the Irish Heart Foundation and Dublin City University.
What is involved in the programme?
The programme is available only to PE teachers. There are two parts to the Y-PATH PE 4 ME programme:
• A 1-hour online course on the Irish Heart Foundation website www.irishheart.ie which must be completed by teacher before attending the workshop
• 3-hour face to face evening workshop held in Education Centres nationally
Teachers will then have the ability to implement the Y-PATH PE 4 ME programme into their PE classes. Teachers will be given a Y-PATH resource pack with lesson plans, posters, student journals, as well as access to an online teacher’s portal containing digital resources to assist with lessons.
How much does it cost?
The workshop is completely free.
Why do schools need Y-PATH PE 4 ME?
• Y-PATH PE 4 Me is the only programme of its kind in Ireland
• Acknowledged by the PDST, UCC and Sport Ireland
• Fits into wellbeing curriculum, highlighting wellbeing indicators involved in each lesson
• Uses a whole school approach with elements for students, teachers and parents
• Adapts current practice to allow engagement of all pupils within PE class
• Designed by teachers for teachers
• Evidence based on the needs of Irish children, backed by 8 years of research
• Does not require any major equipment to run lessons
• Emphasis on fundamental movement skills and physical literacy
• Aims to reduce the age-related decline in physical activity common among post primary school age students
• Focuses on empowerment, motivation and confidence
• Gives students the opportunity to participate in a variety of activities they enjoy
How do teachers register?
Teachers must register directly with Tralee Education Centre at www.edcentretralee.ie . Please note, teachers must complete the 1-hour online course on our website www.irishheart.ie , before attending the education centre workshop.

Dear Science Teacher,

I hope that all is going well and that you are looking forward to the mid-term break.

The Education Centre Tralee is hosting the PDST TY Science workshop on Thursday November  8–flyer attached.

The Agenda of the workshop will include topics on:

  • Student Misconceptions – how to identify and address/rectify
  • Using the ‘Energy stick’ to introduce electricity in a fun way – this will be modelled by facilitators and each participant will receive their own energy stick
  • Using a digital multimeter to measure resistance and current - this will be modelled by facilitators and each participant will receive their own multimeter
  • Using a digital electronic balance to weigh steel wool before and after burning – again this will be modelled by facilitators and each participant will receive their own balance

There will be 2 hands-on sessions where participants will work in groups to carry out investigations intended to reinforce your understanding of different concepts and give you the confidence to use equipment that you may not be very familiar with. Participants will receive a handbook containing all the investigations covered and access to an electronic version of the same.

You can have your say on what investigations would be most useful to you by clicking on the link shown: https://surveyhero.com/c/1f80bb8d

Please pass on details to interested colleagues. Log on to www.pdst.ie to register.
