Resumption of online learning

2021/01/08 17:28:34

Dear parent/guardian, Remote learning will commence on Monday next, January 11th for all students. Students are asked to follow their normal timetable. Their teachers will communicate directly with their classes about the approach to be taken within each subject, as subjects vary in their demands. Students came to school today as arranged to collect materials and books. If there are any outstanding materials required another time slot can be arranged during the week. Please refer to “Continuity of Teaching and Learning “document on school app for summary of how our online learning will operate. I will be I touch with updates as necessary. Take care and stay safe.

Letter from Principal

2020/12/16 14:13:28

The following is the letter from the principal regarding school opening over Christmas. Also, the school breakfast club will not be available on Monday and Tuesday. December 2020 Dear Parent/Guardian, Please find enclosed your son/daughter’s report for our first formal assessment. As mentioned in a previous communication, it is far more detailed than previous reports, in order to allow for the current lack of Parent/Teacher meetings due to the COVID 19 restrictions. I hope you find the extra information of benefit and you may contact the school if you have any queries or want to speak to an individual teacher. There will be no Fresh Today food for students on Monday or Tuesday next. The school will break for Christmas on Tuesday December 22nd at 1.10 pm. School transport will be provided for students at this time. Students will return on THURSDAY January 7th 2021, as teachers have a Junior Cycle Training day on Wednesday 6th. This has been a very different school year for our school community and very challenging at times. I want to express my gratitude to the students and staff for their resilience and perseverance over the last few months. I also want to thank you the parents and guardians for your support throughout this term. We all look forward to the new year with the hope and expectation of a return to normality in the near future. Finally, I wish all of you and your families a Happy Christmas and a peaceful and healthy new year. Yours sincerely, _________________________ JOHN KILLEEN PRINCIPAL
