Coronavirus advice

Date: March 12, 2020 Author: schooladmin Categories: News


Dear all,


We have been asked by the DES to direct your attention to updated guidance issued this morning on talking to children and young people about Covid-19.


You can access and download this guidance in both Irish and English from the Department of Education and Skills website below under the heading ‘Talking to children and young people about Covid-19’.


Please ensure that all education stakeholders and other interested parties receive this update.


We would also like to direct your attention to a child-friendly interview that Deputy Chief Medical Officer Dr Ronan Glynn did with RTÉ’s news2day programme last week, that may also be a useful resource when talking about Covid-19 with children and students.




Please be advised that NABMSE will keep you updated as directions are given by DES.



Best regards



Breda Corr

General Secretary
