Home School Hub in ISL
RTÉ is delighted to confirm that from Monday, February 1st students and their families can view Home School Hub ISL from 10am to 12pm on RTÉjr, mirroring the Home School Hub delivery on RTÉ2.
This new series of Home School Hub ISL will be signed by native ISL presenters Marcus, Jennifer and Tom and will broadcast at 10am Monday to Friday on RTÉjr, followed at 11am by repeat episodes from the first series of Home School Hub ISL.
You can find RTÉjr on UPC /Virgin channel 600/ Saorview channel 7 and Sky channel 617.
This means that from Monday, all children and families will have access to a virtual classroom from 10am-12 noon, either on RTÉ2 or RTÉ Jr and RTÉ Player.
In addition to the broadcast on RTÉjr, the ISL Home School Hub will also stream ‘live’ on the RTÉ Player in its dedicated ISL area which you can find here: https://www.rte.ie/player/onnow/66546216063:
Home School Hub ISL will be available after broadcast here:
RTÉ 2 will continue to broadcast a number of ISL programmes for children during the week including Storytime, Body Brothers, Wild Kids and Drop Dead Weird.
We know this is a challenging time for all parents and their children and we’re committed to supporting the deaf community in whatever way we can. We’re organising a virtual visit by the News2Day team in February in the Holy Family School for The Deaf’s sixth class as well as an on line careers talk for the TY class.
Finally, we’ve added a new feature in RTÉ Player on desktop computers to easily select ISL versions of programmes (where available).
A switch to default to always play ISL (where available) regardless of Sign In:
And the ability to see (and where applicable, select) if an episode has ISL before you play it:
