Online Enrolment

We would be delighted to welcome your child to Presentation Primary School.

Our Open and Enrolment Day usually takes place in January but this year we will have to postpone this event due to Covid-19. Instead we are inviting parents to enrol online and later in the year we will organise a day where parents and pupils can come and visit our school, meet their teacher and see their classroom. We are always available to meet prospective parents and pupils should you wish to visit our school once Covid restrictions are eased.

If you are interested in enrolling you can follow this link to enrol online.

If you have any questions or require support, you can contact me directly at principal@presprimarythurles.ie.

We’re Back – Almost!

This week we were delighted to hear the news that schools will begin the process of re-opening from Monday next. While it is disappointing that our senior girls will have to wait for another two weeks, we know now that the end of remote learning is in sight for them too.

As we prepare to re-open, we are very aware that we must do everything we can to keep our children and staff safe over the coming weeks and months. This week parents will have received a copy of our school’s Covid Response Plan. This is the plan that we will follow to stay safe in school and we thank parents for their support with this.

Here is our plan again for anyone who didn’t see it.

And so to this week’s highlights! I have loved adding the weekly highlights over the past seven weeks and I thank the teachers, not only for sending me photos each week, but for their creativity and innovation in planning these lessons and activities.

Ms. Bohan’s Junior Infants were learning all about the number 5!

We can’t wait to see you all!!

Love is in the Air!

On a weekend when we take the opportunity to tell those around us how much we love them, the pupils of Presentation Primary School certainly showed off their love of art, science and fun! The week was made even more enjoyable when a blanket of snow brought out the inner child in all of us.

RemoteLearning 2.0

Our second stint of Homeschooling is well and truly up and running at this stage and while we know our pupils all dearly miss their friends, their teachers and their school, they have not let this dampen their spirits or stop them from learning and showing off their wonderful talents.

We are delighted with how well our pupils (and parents!) have engaged with Seesaw since we closed. Here are some of the highlights which are proof that you, our pupils, are just amazing people! Well done and keep up the great work!
