Work From Home

28 March 2020

Dear Parents and Children,

We hope you are all well and safe. These are trying times for everyone. Hopefully, everyone is being extra good these days and being nice to everyone at home.

We have been asked to give you a very important message to help keep you and everyone else safe – the Department of Education has asked us to convey to you the absolute need to practice social and physical distancing, and to minimise physical contact with each other, to help avoid the spread of Covid-19. This should include advice to avoid meeting up and in all circumstances to adhere to HSE guidelines. As part of your school community, parents and guardians should also be urged to support their children to maintain the restrictions on congregating for the safety of all in their community.

Communities Information Notices are available at this link in 17 different languages.

Your teacher has set work for you – click the link below. Attempt what you can do and don’t be worried if you don’t get it finished.

Enjoy your Easter and hopefully we will see you back at school shortly afterwards.

Stay well and Stay Safe.

Yours sincerely,
Neil Cadogan
