That is permissible under current regulations

Yeah, just such a shame that they had to travel that far to get a game, was hoping wed have come into line with the south in this area. Fair play to them, shows some commitment to travel that for a challenge game

With the current  SF -DUP standoff   I think it has been put on the long finger !

In my experience, the vast majority of schools coped and delivered effective learning opportunities for pupils .
Post - primaries would be in a better position in terms of IT to deliver on line live lessons , as they are far better resourced.
Primary schools wouldnt have the IT infrastructure or finance to have expertise in IT. Education dept have nt refreshed the equipment in 6/7 years - it's knackered.
Please remember , we haven't been in the situation before.
Schools should be sending out questionnaires seeking ways to improve the service provided to the pupils and in supporting parents . If the arent doing that , then they deserve to be rebuked.
Some schools will need to improve , some will need to add consistency across the school , others will be able to continue with the service they have provided for August and September.

All I can tell you is the winter vomiting bug goes around a school like wild fire.( It's not pleasant !)
So a slower return to school will diminish the risk of spikes in the R number and curtail the possibility of a further closure.

So far tonight there are 4 Division 1 teams in Ulster and there are no floodlit grounds in Ulster.

What are you talking about? Down & Armagh both have floodlit grounds. Not sure about the rest

Omagh and Enniskillen do too. Think Ballybofey does too

Ballybofey  and Breffini - with floodlights

Same in any job. There are lazy feckers being paid a lot of money in plenty of jobs.

I wouldnít say Teachers get paid a lot of money

They did this month  :)

What way is it? One off payment? Does that cover the whole time ?

Roughly , just over a month's salary , MR   plus a bit of uplift in the monthly salary to reflect pay scale improvements
It covered two years , with two years to be negotiated,  likely to be 2% over the two years. Unfortunately , no funds available to make it up, in the DENI coffers.

Mrs M R must be happy.

Itís like I said to someone recently when they were slating Richard Branson. Irrespective of what he is etc you donít like him because the media have decided you donít like him. Tories, daily mail etc started stuff on teachers making it that people should dislike them too.

Like any profession no doubt there are a few chancers about but plenty of very good ones too.
I'm married to one and she works very hard and gets good results, but she would admit there is one teacher in her school who does close to f**k all, gets mediocre results but still gets the same pay and conditions as her colleagues and will continue until retirement in the same vein.

That's scandalous of your wife to say that.
Must be a PE teacher !!!!

Teachers are the enemy of ignorance.

Teachers are fed up with people trying to tell them how to do their jobs, starting with balloons like Nolan on BBC-  a complete air head !
 I dont see any other topic streams on here , for example , that criticise other professions in the same way , because everyone is an expert in the field of the pedagogy of teaching , learning and assessment- or so they think !

They do develop into very good / outstanding inter county footballers and hurlers. I'm not sure were they get the time to be so good at their job and play inter county, but they are greatly admired in the 32 counties.

Our club  is littered with them!

I believe that it is the preferred profession for inter county players  , or working in the bank !

4873 cases
547 deaths

And the schools are closed.

Madness

Trailer ..hope all is well with you and your kids.
Would you consider that the fact that schools were closed was a contributory factor in these statistics and the fact that the lockdown was taken seriously by everyone
