Written answers (Question to Education)

The Department of Education has worked collaboratively with the Department of Health and the HSE to support the delivery of important public health messages to school communities – students, staff and parents. Schools have been provided with a wide range of posters, videos and resource materials to support them and to support onward communication to students and parents.

The Department of Health and HSE lead on public health communication and the Department of Education will continue to seek to amplify this messaging to ensure school communities have access to timely, relevant and accurate information.
