Offaly Dyslexia Group would like to extent a huge thanks to all who supported our annual flag day in Tullamore last Saturday 8th October. The generosity of those who donated will continue to allow us to support and help children and adults with Dyslexia in the local area. We are all very grateful.
In other news, workshops are back up and running for the past few weeks, and so far seem to once again be a success. We have a few places left for this term, to book a child into the workshops contact Frances on 0862309009.
We also want to welcome our two new co-ordinators Ciara Costello and Emer O’Brien. We’re looking forward to working with them over the next few months and beyond.
We’ve had a really busy year this year in Offaly Dyslexia Group, with the highest ever numbers of attendees, a complete rework of workshops and a whole team of Co-Ordinators doing a fantastic job at keeping us all organised.
We’re currently on a well deserved break for Easter, but we’ll be back on Monday 4th April for our final 3 weeks of the term. We can’t believe another year is nearly gone!
Our waiting list is now open for the few remaining places left for September, so make sure to give Frances a ring on 0862309009 if you’re interested in enrolling a child.
We’re also looking at making our new panel of tutors for next term, so any interested qualified teachers (both Primary and Secondary who have completed the DAI course) should send a copy of their CV to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Offaly Dyslexia Group is excited to announce that this year we will have a team of three joint Program Co-Ordinators. Shona O’Callaghan, Michelle O’Meara and Nick Hines have agreed to work together to lead our workshop programme from September. We wish them luck!
On April 4th 2015, Colin Kelly, Nick Hynes and Gearoid Oman volunteered to take part in a skydive to raise funds for the group. Many thanks to the Irish Parachuting Club in Clonbullogue for hosting the event and recording the jumps, to everyone who came out to support the day, and especially to the three jumpers themselves.
