Confirmation of National Conference

The FTA wishes to confirm that our National Conference scheduled for Maynooth on October 11-12th will go ahead as planned. Attendance at same is not contrary to the ASTI’s Industrial Action Directives, as shown by this extract from Q&A:

“Can I attend in-service or other training that is voluntary?”

“The directives refer to school meetings that take place outside of normal school time, including nationally mandated or school arranged in-service and junior cycle in-service. The directives do not preclude teachers from attending voluntary in-service events outside of school time as long as it is not related to Junior Cycle reform.”

Annual Membership 2013/14

Membership for 2013/14 will be possible through this site from later on this week. For now, our energy is taken up by managing online enrollment for the October conference. This is being done online so as to cut down on the endless hours spent in administration.

If there are queries about the process, or if unfamiliar with online payments, please give as much detail as possible when contacting us ie. list what steps you've taken. It may be worth mentioning that, although faceless, we're humans, who aren't DES employees, and who fit in managing this site around our everyday lives.

School Exchange with Bar sur Seine

Hello, my name is Laurent VIALATTE. I’m an English teacher and I work in Bar sur Seine in the Aube department in the Champagne-Ardennes region of north-eastern France.

My colleagues and I have created a European section with pupils of 13-15 (there are about 18 pupils in 4ème and 8 in 3ème). We’d like to find a school in Ireland to set up an exchange in order to communicate and visit each other.

Our town is near Troyes, a medieval city, which is also famous for its low-priced stores. Champagne is all around with the vines and cellars.

A little further (about 1 hour and 45 min), you’ll be able to visit Provins, a wonderful medieval city with lots of live shows and entertainment. And we’re not far from Paris !

It would be great for our teenagers to meet Irish people (some of them have already been to London on a school trip, so we wish they knew another culture) and establish a long-term relationship.

I really hope you’ll get in touch with me and look forward to hearing from you.

A la recherche d’un lycée partenaire pour une simple visite dans votre établissement lors de notre voyage

‘Si vous étés intéresse(e)s ou si vous connaissez un lycée qui serait prêt a nous accueillir, merci de me contacter très rapidement…’

From: Maryline Lacam



J’enseigne l’anglais au Lycée Agricole de Montauban, dans le sud-ouest de la France. Notre établissement est titulaire de la charte Erasmus.

Nous organisons un voyage en Irlande pour 28 élevés de Terminale STAV (Sciences et Technologies de l’Agronomie et du Vivant) en Septembre 2013 dans les régions de Dublin et de Galway.

Nous sommes a la recherche d’un lycée partenaire pour une simple visite dans votre établissement lors de notre voyage (avec présentation de notre projet “Alimentation en Midi Pyrénées”, dégustation et échanges sur ce thème avec vos élevés.)

Nous avons obtenu une subvention pour financer ce voyage d’études mais nous ne pouvons prévoir aucun planning tant que nous ne savons pas quel établissement (et dans quelle région) pourra nous accueillir.

Si vous étés intéresse(e)s ou si vous connaissez un lycée qui serait prêt a nous accueillir, merci de me contacter très rapidement.

Comptant vraiment sur votre aide.
