Home School Community Liaison (HSCL)

 

The Department of Education and Skills has provided St. Farnan's Post Primary School with a home-school service. The correct name for this feature of the school is Home School Community Liaison, but this is often shortened to Home School. The coordinator is Ms. Jennifer Reilly. Jennifer was a Music and French teacher and was also the ASD Class coordinator in recent years. Jennifer is the HSCL coordinator for a five year term from 2021-2026.
