Education Minister Norma Foley has announced a ‘No Homework Day’ for all schoolchildren in the country.
The gift of an evening without homework has been issued to thank students for their hard work during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Teachers will decide what day children can use the no homework pass between now and Christmas.
Minister Foley made the announcement in an interview with ‘Seamus the Dog’ on RTÉ’s After School Hub, which will air tomorrow.
Minister Foley explained: “All the students I know have been really good and have been working very hard since they went back to school. Their teacher will decide what day the children can use it someday between now and Christmas.
“The children and young people of Ireland have been just fantastic. We’ve very very proud of them and this is a thank you.“
The homework pass will be available to download from RTE.ie/learn from tomorrow afternoon.
