15th March, 2021.
A big welcome back to our 3rd to 6th class pupils. Little did we know on December 22nd (Christmas holidays) that we would be off school until today. It’s been a tough few months for everyone but the vast majority of pupils seem to have adapted well to ‘Zoom’ and ‘Edmodo’. I’d like to thank the children for their good work ethic and sense of humour while on ‘Zoom’.
We have two weeks as a ‘whole’ school before Easter holidays. We’ve been off school long enough. We’re hoping that the school can avoid getting cases of Covid 19 over the next few weeks. We must be vigilant at all times and not cut corners in terms of safety i.e. children must sanitise hands entering and exiting the building as well as when entering and exiting vehicles. Under no circumstances whatsoever must a child be sent to school if there are any concerns about them having Covid 19. If you are unsure contact a G.P. immediately for advice.
St. Patrick’s Day
Our annual St. Patrick’s Day Ceili in the school hall has been cancelled again this year. We would, however, love if the children came to school tomorrow dressed in Green no large hats or wigs. Healthy, lunches are optional. We are a ‘NUT FREE’ school so the children aren’t allowed bring food or sweets that have nuts or traces of nuts. There is no sharing of food particularly now with the coronavirus pandemic.
We hope to have a few musical and dancing performances tomorrow outdoors weather permitting. If your child would like to do an Irish dance or play a musical instrument we would love if they performed for us. The school is closed on Wednesday for St. Patrick’s Day.
