Hi everyone

I am a mother of 2 girls ages 15&16, I just recently moved back to Galway.
Amongst the stress of having just moved back I could do with some advise on schools for my girls.

Situation is not a straight forward one.
My girls have been living in Egypt ( not with my consent ) and had all their education in Egypt, they hardly speak any English and only now do I have a chance to give them the opportuntiy to get a proper Education here.

How do I go about this at a time when school is starting end of August.
Area we live is Craughwell, So secondary schools around that area are Oranmore or Athenry? What grade should they join in as the Egyptian education system to here is most likely 2 years behind.? It will be a huge transformation for them.
Would I need school documents from their previous school? Translated? as everything is in Arabic if I can get hold of these.

Also any parents out there that can recommend and English Private teacher in Craughwell area?


Thanks
Dani
