Tusla are urgently trying to recruit new foster carers for the Carlow, Kilkenny and South Tipperary areas.
Tusla foster carers provide a home for children who are unable to live with their own families, and give them the support they need to thrive. Fostering may be for a few days or weeks, or for many years, and the children range from babies to teenagers. Fostering can be challenging and also highly rewarding. Foster carers come from all walks of life. Many foster carers have their own children. Foster carers can be single, married, in a same-sex relationships, employed, unemployed, and retired.
Tusla needs carers from varying ethnicities and cultures. Tusla – Child and Family Agency provides the training and support which will enable people to undertake this challenging task.
Please do not hesitate to contact Tusla on 1800 226 771 or e-mail email@example.com if you would like to make an enquiry about becoming a foster carer.
An Online Information Session will take place on the 15th September 2021 at 10am for anyone who would like to find out more about Fostering.

The Board of Management would like to sincerely thank all those who stood by our school community during this difficult time - for the support we received from within our school community, local community and further afield.
The Board of Management is very pleased to welcome the approval by the Department of Education and Skills of substantial additional accommodation for our school, based on a long term projected enrolment of one thousand students.
This approval by the Department of Education and Skills is testament to the progression and development of the school over recent years and is a strong indicator of the reputation and status of the school moving forward. The provision of the additional accommodation will ease the annual oversubscription for places in our school and will enhance the top-class facilities already available to students.
The additional accommodation includes thirteen general classrooms, Staffroom, Multimedia Room, Music Room, DCG Room, Construction Studies Room, Technology Room, Textiles Room, two Science Laboratories, Pastoral Offices and associated circulation areas, student locker spaces and toilets.
Our school community looks forward, with excitement and anticipation, to the further development of Presentation College.
The Spaghetti Marshmallow Challenge produced some amazing and creative designs from the First Years during their recent 'Fun Day'. The students had to create the tallest free-standing structure in groups of four using a limited amount of marshmallows. Students developed lateral thinking, problem identification, and problem-solving skills while working cooperatively as part of a team. Thanks to Ms Michelle Ryan for facilitating the challenge.
