See the local Primary school getting a delivery of Portacabins. I can recall getting a bit of ridicule for suggesting Portacabins as a potential route out of the social distancing conundrum. ???

School budgets are tight enough, so portacabbins will cost a few bob Iíd say, will there be extra teachers with these portacabnins?
I dont know, but I would suspect not. It's more about manouvering existing numbers about the place. You teaching hoors dont like thinking outside the box.

Iím not teaching anymore thank f**k but youíre trying to fix numbers that canít be done without actually bringing in more teachers. Happy days if the government give schools a bigger budget
Anything I post is not the view of the County Board!! Nobody died in the making of this post ;-)

Perhaps that school was getting portacabins anyway? The timing of the delivery would suggest it had been planned for summer holidays so not necessarily a social distancing management measure. But it could be....

I've a wee bit of experience on getting portacabins into an existing school setting, permission from the EA is required, planning permission is required and the cabin must be sourced. The EA will generally do the sourcing, but there's usually a substantial lead in time for these as they either have to be built or procured from another school where it is no longer required. A classroom type portacabin would be in excess of 100K too.
You could look up planning applications for the school and it may say why the cabins are required.

They could well help with socially distancing, but there is a lot of cost per cabin and then you need to staff the extra classroom.
I haven't seen any of the schools around my way getting them in nor have I heard any discussion from any of the school's my kids are at around getting them.

Which school Benny - CBS?
If so numbers for the Bunscoil starting Sept are enough for 2 Rang 1 classes, could possibly be preplanning for future demand.

Maybe due to area planning with increased admission numbers for that particular school because Minister Weir has emailed schools to say the Dept of Education hadn't two pennies to rub together to pay for any additional costs

Probably due another pay rise. If not, industrial action again.

After the way GAA clubs reacted to a player testing positive, has there been any guideline offered yet as to what happens if a pupil or teacher tests positive?

Anyone who has had to home school their kids and pulled most of their own hair out in the attempt will have increased appreciation for teachers and the work they do, how anyone controls a class of children I have no idea. Not sure which would be worse, a classroom of 6/7 year olds with the energy to fuel a star or one full of hormonal teenagers.

You are having a laugh! Teachers train in college to teach. That's their job. They teach during their working hours, not like most people after having done a days work.  They get well paid, do short hour days and get lorry loads of holidays. The vast amount of Teachers in the Republic piggy-backed on the parents from March to June.

If you want to go praising people, then praise the shopkeepers who kept the Shops open so you could eat!
