RTE 2 – Home School Hub

Home School Hub is breaking through the dark days, like a ray of sunshine and, dare we say it…is there a bit of a stretch in the evenings already?!

So, make sure to tune in every weekday from 10am on RTÉ2 to join the class wherever you are. For students, parents and teachers this is where the lessons will be posted and the new activity sheets will be added as the week goes on.

We want you to check in here and share your learning with us! So, let’s see what’s in store…
