The Western Education and Library Board (WELB) is reminding parents of post primary school open days and evenings taking place across the WELB area until mid-February.

P7 pupils and their parents will have an opportunity to visit post primary schools for guided tours and view facilities and different departments. 

A WELB spokesperson said: “Parents/guardians and pupils will have an opportunity to speak with principals and staff at the open days/evenings and answer any questions they may have. The visits will assist them in considering post primary education for September 2014.”

All parents of P7 pupils should receive the following documents in relation to Transfer 2014 to assist them in deciding on their child’s future secondary level education.

In addition, parents of P6 pupils will receive a DE Leaflet – Advice for Parents of Children in Primary Six for Transfer 2015.

You can view and download the Board’s Booklet and Open Days/Evenings schedule from the website, www.welbni.org by selecting School Admissions on the home page. 

Alternatively, copies can be obtained on request from Board Headquarters or local libraries.

If you wish to obtain a booklet or an open days/evenings schedule for a school in another Board area or if any additional information is required please contact the primary school principal or the Board’s School Admissions Office at WELB Headquarters, Tel: (028) 8241 1460 / 1547.
