We are delighted to announce that we have developed a new tutor system in Coláiste Abbáin which now gives students daily contact with a teacher at the begining of each school day. This timetabled tutor system will enable teachers to develop a stong bond with a specific class group for the academic year. The role of class tutor will be to encourage, motivate and guide students to become involved in all aspects of school life and to encourage them to reach their full potential. Each morning students will meet with their class tutor at 8.52am in a base classroom. Any notes for absenteeism must be handed in on the day of return to school. All students are expected to be in on time for tutor class as it is part of their academic day. Thank you to the teachers who have volunteered to become tutors in our school. We look forward to experiencing the positive outcomes from a structured tutor system in Coláiste Abbáin this academic year.
