POSTPONED:Teachers’ Online Afternoon Cuppa 14 Oct 2021

*THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED* a new date for our next Teachers Cuppa event will be published shortly. Primary and preschool teachers are warmly invited to grab a cuppa of their choice and join us on Zoom for our afternoon cuppa event. This will be an informative and relaxed chat with The Ark team, like-minded teachers, and our guest speaker.

We are delighted to welcome librarian Veronica Ryan as our special guest, who will discuss the world of libraries, what services they offer, and ideas on how you can use your local library resources to inspire and support you in your classrooms.

The Ark began working with Ballyfermot, Coolock and Cabra libraries earlier this year, as a new partner of the Dublin City Arts Office and Libraries Creative Hubs programme, working specifically on the early years programming strand. Dublin City Arts Office and Libraries have been offering creative arts experiences to children since 2010, including free performances, exhibitions, workshops and short residencies to the local communities through the Creative Hubs programme.

After Veronica’s short talk and time for questions, we’ll break into small groups so you’ll have a chance for a chat and catch up with colleagues. Come and join us for a relaxed and enjoyable gathering this afternoon.

As there is a limit to the number of places on a video call we do need you to register this time. We promise it is really quick and simple.

Please register here.

Once you have successfully registered, we will email you a link to a Zoom call on the morning of the event. Please be advised you will need to install the Zoom app in advance which can be downloaded here.
